Don’t Sleep, There Are Snakes by Daniel L. Everett was SUCH a good book. I could not put it down. It was filled with strange languages and exotic adventures, which Everett experienced first hand. It was crazy.

In an intense and deeply absorbing account, Everett opens up completely and lays his encounters with these mystifying people out for all to see. Taking on the Pirahãn "The past is the past and does not matter. Only now matters." attitude, he includes all of the most gruesome, embarrassing, and enlightening details of his journey with no regard to how any of it may be perceived. What results is a genuine and engrossing book that is both sharp and intuitive.

I love, love, LOVED it.
