To be clear, I've only worked through Chs. 1-7 which give a good overview of 2 pp ZSG and (prudent) solution methods (an extension over the history of field--read previously).

Pretty interesting overall. He inserts a lot of his own opinion vaguely disguised as fact, which is slightly odd, but overall pretty informative.
