Having started reading this book in high school I never actually have been to be able to finish it. The wording is confusing, the thoughts sometimes to complex for normal minds, and the structure of the sentence pure madness. Therefore, I must confess my sins of not feeling myself able to finish this book. Anyways, the main interests of this book is not so much on what it says to us now, but more to make us, in hindsight, appreciate the development of Bordieu`s philosophy.

for anyone interested in a more inviting embrace into the world of Bourdieu`s philosophy should look elsewhere (Bourdieu & Wacquant 1992).
