1.0 out of 5 stars Simply: a stretch, 24 Jun. 2009
I felt like ADB was looking for something to write about and didn't have anything in mind when he sat down to write this book.

Piecemeal; disjointed and often stretching to far to show philosophical depth in much of the content where it simply did not exist.

His other bworks are far better, if this is your first reading of ADB I suggest checking out "The architecture of happiness" which is a much better example of (his) philosophical inquiry of the world around us.
