A multitude of fascinating ideas and insights all written in an accessible and engaging manner—no small feat, considering the topic and the references/positions taken.
Strange thing: I bought book as it looked very interesting but the size meant it would not encroach on my own reading list (took an hour to read). However there is a much larger/detailed book in here that I hope the authors go and develop, as I was left wanting more.
