Eurgh. Read for my Philosophy of Religion class, and while I don't mind the concept of deconstruction, it was hardly explained significantly and/or succinctly in this book. I understand that deconstruction is a hard philosophical concept to grasp, but expanding on several of its key points without initially laying the foundations of the assumptions of deconstruction made this a poor choice for introducing the concept to people.
