really liked it

I am no expert on the topic, but I really enjoyed this. I agree with some criticism that there are a lot of uninterrogated quotes from others but for something with so much information I just flew through it. I enjoyed the history as much as the intellectual debate. This was a pretty random library loan for me but I'm so glad I did it.

85.0% "I did not realize when I started this that I had also read another book by Ricks, Churchill and Orwell. That book was okay. This book? I am riveted. I can't say that I have much background knowledge in the subject matter, but I am fascinated and feel like I am learning a lot of stuff I didn't know as well as engaging in an interesting philosophical discussion."
