Debord is more coherent. This book seemed more full of trite slogans, chants for revolution. Its not more accessible, its dense. PLUS, he wrote it saying that after he wrote it more changes would come and that more would need to be written! Now, 40 years later we are still reading it like it still means what it meant then in 1967! It's become a historical artifact! And honestly, his historical biases and assumptions are to Eurocentric for me to buy anymore.

This book was a product of its times. Period. The same people who bought into it and used it as a guidebook, didn't accomplish shit. They simply became the power heirarchy that this book was designed against. Revolution bullshit.
