good points but awful writing style
on 13 January 2014
I found many ideas in this book informative and important. However, I found the writing to be very irritating, as it is overloaded with exclamation marks and scare quotes. The tone is too sarcastic and mock- jocular, which work far better in spoken arguments. In addition, having informed us that medieval heretics were not persecuted for their scientific theories, there is a hint of the author approving of the medieval church going after heretics to enforce approved theological dogma.
