This is the 4th book I read after deciding I wanted to look into social movements like Post Modernism, Modernity, Modernism in general and the 2nd book I've read on Semiotics and I found the chapters in this book lacking depth on the topics its trying to cover, you'd be better off reading Wikipedia.

There are a list of ideas/topics the book attempts to talk about but there is no actual discussion, each chapter defines a topic, gives an example and moves on to the next one. No context is given, nothing is tied together with each other or to a greater concept, its not that this book is necessarily a 'simple introduction' to these ideas for people new to the concepts, its just a list of definitions.

This is a very clear, accessible and well-designed guide to semiotics.
Would recommend this book for entry to mid-level design students.
