really liked it
bookshelves: currently-reading

In spite of its writing style, which is so academic that I have to underline or highlight to keep myself paying attention, this is a truly exciting book, as ambitious as the title implies.

I read it in bursts --between fiction and poetry reads--because it's too heavy to retain the information if I put in long stretches.

If you liked, you could read just the parts that interested you-- though to some extent each chapter builds on the one before.
