5.0 out of 5 stars Humourous and clever attack on rhetoric, 13 Mar 2004
I was primarily using this book as a way of critiquing the post-moderns who are described as tantamount to a new religion by Wheen which of course according to their horrific theory (that I have been indoctrinated into) you wouldn't of be able to be certain about either way or else your assertion that were full of pretentious nonsense would have to undergo deconstruction to see the underlying assumptions at work...really accessible and funny, what a shame it will be dismissed as a non-academic text in postmodern circles if they acknowledge its existence at all.
