This is truly one of the worst-written books I have ever read. As an archaeologist/anthropologist, seeing the glaring errors written by Mr. Wilson truly sicken me . . .and lead me to doubt the truth of anything else in this book. Sir, your condescending attitude and lack of knowledge really should have stayed where they belong: in your own head.
