      Hi Beverly,
      I used the Heider book for a couple of semesters and didn't care for it
      very much. I thought the text was too idiosyncratic ( the chapter on
      cultural symbols was placed toward the end of the text, instead of during
      the initial discussions of the culture concept, where I thought it should
      be ), and, while some of the video clips were interesting and useful, many
      of them were not ( my students especially disliked the one on Dani
      children's games ). Just my opinion.
