Regurgitated Self-loathing Diatribe
on July 13, 2005
This book was a disappointment not only in its poor writing style, but all in the fact that it does not break any new ground. It is little more than a string of regurgitated self-loathing diatribes written to target an already pre-defined and well-established group of readers who scoop books up like this so that they can cite secondary sources to justify their world view. Rather than taking a balanced approach with each of the topics they addressed, these authors rush to a conclusion unsubstantiated either in fact or analysis and little true "discovery" is ever made.
I have much more respect for authors who seek to do some spade work in uncovering a new point of view, balanced and justified with deductive reasoning, not recitations of pre-packaged pabulum already in circulation in dog eared white papers written by disenfranchised college professors.
Fortunately, I bought this book used and my personal loss, other than the time I spent reading it, was minimized.
