Has anyone started this? I read it a couple of months ago

Pamela (bibliohound) | 359 comments Just started it Paul. Finding it hard going at the moment - very dense in both style and content - but I think later chapters look a bit more accessible.

Debbie | 585 comments I have read the introduction only so far. I get the feeling this is going to be a slow read.

Pamela (bibliohound) | 359 comments Finally finished this one. Some chapters I found fascinating, others were hard going.

I did too when I read it Pamela. My review is here. I felt that it read like a academic paper, rather than a general non fiction book

Pamela (bibliohound) | 359 comments I agree Paul. This is my review
