If this book is anything like "you wouldn't want to be an Aztec sacrifice" then is the biggest waste of time and money. You might want to choose a book from an author that actually does research on the subject.

How to be an Aztec Warrior is a fantastic introduction to the culture, history, and religion of the Aztecs. I used this book as a supplement to my Mesoamerican textbooks as this is a very accessible text.
