's review

it was ok
bookshelves: non-fiction, contemporary

uuummmm.....I would have liked to give this book more stars. The premise is great, the title very clever, and the amount of work that has gone into it staggering. However, reading it is like pulling yourself through a vat of peanut butter, it just drags on and on and never really seems to get to the point.
Sooooo many case studies, I wasn't really interested after the first 5 or 6, ...yeah a bit too much history, and didn't get down to the nitty gritty of the psycho analytical reasons why one, or one's community, or one's planet, might be stuffocating. Too hard. Gave up. I got the gist - think it could have been half the length.

Bookfairy I did find some areas dragged, but overall I thought it was pulled together well, and there was a good conclusion, unlike many popular science books I've read.

Marcia Bate If you find anyone who's covered the psychoanalysis aspect, I'm all ears! (or eyes, as it were.)
