Having read other scholars' comments on Gray's interpretation of Berlin's thought, I was intrigued to read this book myself. I can honestly say it is a thoroughly interesting read. Those interested in Berlin and Gray's thought will find this book insightful. Even though Gray's handling of Berlin is questionable in terms of the limits he places on rationalism, he does provide the reader with a detailed account of the origins of Berlin's thought. Finally, the new introduction for this 2013 edition demonstrates the relevance of Berlin's thought, but also provides and insight into Gray's political philosophy.
