5.0 out of 5 stars Nigeria
It is hard to find good books about Nigeria, many seem to be rather out of date. However this small book is very useful. It covers various parts of Nigerian culture is a very interesting and positive way. I would recommend it to any one going to Nigeria or wanting to know more about the country.

1.0 out of 5 stars mostly rehashes material available elsewhere
This book is mostly a set of broad generalizations about West African culture, and often almost directly reproduces material that already exists elsewhere (i.e. the Bradt Guide).

1.0 out of 5 stars mostly rehashes material available elsewhere, 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is mostly a set of broad generalizations about West African culture, and often almost directly reproduces material that already exists elsewhere (i.e. the Bradt Guide). The author doesn't convince that she has extensive experience in Nigeria beyond living there for a year or two. Mostly the observations seem quite superficial. Perhaps useful to those who have never traveled in West Africa before looking for a quick introduction to everyday culture, religion, etc. But don't expect any profound (or particularly useful) insights.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just right, 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just right for the person I bought it for. They wanted clear information about the country and cultures which is separated into chapters.
