It seems only variations of the liar paradox have survived?!?

I found this book to be difficult to read due to typos, bad use of language and a consistent explanation of all the things that were irrelevant to the actual point of the book, ie paradoxes. Many of the chapters I wasn't actually sure what the paradox was, or where it had been explained.

The book does have parts of interest and can be insightful but they are too few. Not one I would recommend.
