This book reads more like a manic hagiography than anything else. Besides being lazy, Kroker's refusal to provide any critical analysis or points of contention is kind of unbelievable--how many decades have passed since many of these texts were published? Have we actually accrued no hindsight? No contradictions have emerged, no historical divergences? Also, "the body drift" feels more like an awkward framing device than an actual proposal. Man, I wanted to like you so badly!

I've read Chapters 1+3, and skimmed the fourth chapter. Kroker doesn't really seem to add anything to the literature. This book seems more or less a poor overview of the three thinkers: Butler, Hayles, Haraway. He doesn't really discuss these thinker's thoughts, outside of comparing them to Nietzsche, Heidegger and Marx.

Not really worth the read.
