What a badly written book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Humanism: A Beginner's Guide (Beginner's Guides) (Paperback)
This is a dreadful little book. I bought it because it is heavily advertised by the British Humanist Association, so I thought it would be a good place to start.
But as another reviewer commented, it's a poor advert for humanism. I have no problem with the ideas expressed, but the prose style is awful. I can't quite think of the right word to describe it: self-indulgent, smug, wilfully opaque, rambling ... It's simply tedious to read.
This is the second book I have bought in this series, and the other was just as bad. I think Oneworld must just be a second-rate publishing company. I'm not buying any more.
