It's hard to only give this 3 stars - it really was quite good.
If I had not read Seeing Like a State first, this would probably have gotten 5 stars. If you HAVE read Seeing Like a State, there is not much new information or insight in this book. I'd say that the entire first half is a recap of Seeing Like a State. The second half does have a few new insights, but it's mostly a different angle of the same topics already covered.
If you have NOT read Seeing Like a State, I think you will like this a lot.
