it was ok

The bad: From the start I saw in the book some quite bad/dangerous views on the world, and particularly the kinds of solutions it was proposing to some problems felt not based on reality but on wishy thinking, some even with dangerous consequences if implemented. Also the book contains quite a bit of A is A and looks like A type reasoning, with the effect of just saying obvious stuff (or even dictionary definitions?), which as well with some of the stories just dragged it on.
The good: so why did I finish it? Well, because beside these things the book also has some quite good data, research and information that I wasn't able to find anywhere else... too bad it's mixed into so much other stuff.
