Leach's book is a dense read, heavily relying on Jean Baudrillard and Guy Debord and their critique of contemporary capitalist society.

There are also references to Georg Simmel and Walter Benjamin.

There are interesting ideas, but the book is rather short, so that ideas are not too developped.

The author is intentionally polemical in his approach and extreme in his argumentation. It might be thought-provoking for some and loathable for others.
