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.
