Read in June, 1995

It is a bit outdated but still worth reading, specially the chapters about the rise of reason. It changed my perception about current state of things. As a Washington Post reviewer wrote, this is "a hand grenade diguised as a book" and I think it describes perfectly Saul's powerfull arguments and analysis about our western society.
