A decent survey of philosophies of human nature. I would have preferred a more objective survey with less of the author's "I" sprinkled into chapters he felt more strongly about. Also the repetition of certain quotes reminded me at several points that the author may have several leanings in what I was hoping to be a level playing field of review.
