Entertaining but not as critical as I would have liked. Does not use the best examples to clarify his definitions. I expected it to go further into the politics of language and really dig into some of the most contemporary and prominent ironies, such as ironic consumerism- -which is so much a part of pop culture and a driving force of young consumers. Actually, I don't think Urban Outfitters would be in business without it. A little superficial, but fun I suppose.
