it was ok

Read in January, 2007

Meandering. Lots of weird structural choices, like the fake author. I liked the assessments of empiricist philosophers; he could have pulled off a book that was nothing but that. Instead, he tried to write "Blink", and "Blink" has an awesome author, and wasn't even that good of a book to begin with.
