It goes beyond 'Heavy going' to 'extreamly difficult slog'.

Although i enjoy expanding my knowledge, and this book was recommended to me by someone who's opinion i respect, i have to say that it's certainly not an easy read. the chapters are often small (a number being a couple of lines or even words), however, these few words are very symbolic, often to the point of being enigmatic. The original text is accompanied by a desciption of the meaning, which i found incoherent and often useless to me. i'm sure that if you enjoy reading something that is all the things i've described, or even like a challenge, this book will work for you, but for me, it's obvious why this kind of material is not part of the mainstream.
