I often come back to this book, as an approachable and well written synopsis of Popper's thought. I find the final chapter that summarises criticisms of Popper to be a useful reference but there is a danger that readers will leave with these (mostly invalid) criticisms imprinted in their memories rather than the main content of the book.

This is a fine book which details Popper's final thoughts on all of his theories, and the long road that led him there. Everything is well coordinated with cross-referenced citations for all of his major works and trends. I would give it 5 stars, but as Popper would be the first to acknowledge, there is always room for improvement!
