There are some interesting ideas and pieces of history in here and I began the book with great enthusiasm. However, my interest waned as I continued to read. Sometimes when academics try to write something accessible, their writing still reads too much like a thesis. The interesting bits are obscured by repetitive arguments and excessive supporting details.
