Wood does an excellent job excavating those moments in Chesterton where his Kipling-like jingoism gives way to a more chastened Christian vision that eschews triumphalism, exposes the dangers of a will-to-power mentality, and advocates the extending of hospitality even (and especially) to one's enemies.-- Louis Markos ― Reformation 21 blog
Wood's critical retrieval of Chesterton's work demonstrates very clearly how worthwhile it remains to engage with Chesterton's most essential and provocative ideas.-- Fergus Kerr, Honorary Professor of Modern Catholic Theology at the University of St Andrews

First off, I usually like footnotes right there on the page being read. These are not. They are at the back of the book. For those of us who are interested in footnotes, this is so very off-putting, requiring much back-and-forth flipping to/from the back to look at the notes! I absolutely hate this.
If footnotes are put off to the end of the book, then they should be numbered consecutively throughout the book, not starting with new numbers for every chapter. The footnotes in this book, very aggravatingly, require one to look at the super-heading of the appendix with all footnotes just to know whether you are looking up notes on the correct chapter or page of the text.
I am barely into chapter one and already getting exasperated trying to keep track of the notes. I may not finish the book at all because of this serious flaw.
