Pretty disappointing. I mostly agree with the general point of view being expressed here -- that commercialisation has unacknowledged costs -- but the treatment is superficial and repetitious. This is a polemic rather than a work one would expect of a famous philosopher. Instead of analysing the relevant concepts he feeds us vague locutions like "it is not easy to explain what is wrong with..." Well, if it were easy we wouldn't need a book on the subject, but Sandel is too lazy to bother trying to explain.
