I am Groot
It is the sort of anthropology peace that I had no patience for in high school, but enjoy the hell out of now. As a teenager, I just wasn't all that interested in anything that was not a computer or a guitar. I Netflix'ed the PBS miniseries a few years back, and felt like I needed to know so much more than they could fit onto a television show. It would be a great place to start, since if you don't enjoy it, you're not going to enjoy the book; the author narrates the show.
