      Comments about National Geographic Book of Peoples of the World:

      I expected information about the DNA of each people covered in the book but there were only general discussions about the results of the Genographic testing and no specific information about each of the peoples.

      National Geographic needs to have a book about the results of the genographic survey and its implications on the early migrations and interrelationships of peoples.

      Comments about National Geographic Book of Peoples of the World:

      An over all decent book on the peoples of the world. Not as in depth and comprehensive as I had hoped. There are a few people that aren't mentioned that I had hoped to learn more about, but otherwise very informative. It's a good book for somebody that is just beginning to explore the cultures of the world.
