The carelessness in compiling such a short book appalled me. Within the first dozen pages there were so many grammatical errors, misspellings, and content errors that it really disrupted my flow of reading. "In this section I will focus on Schelling Iain Grant's text on him" (p. 12). When you are reading along, this kind of just shocks the brain into confusion. One mistake like this is not bad, but a book full of them is a pain. One finds misspellings abound, such as "anthrocentrism" (p. 6). Then there is the flat out errors in content, including, when referring to the authors of "Collapse and Chaos," calling Cohen a mathematician and Stewart a biologist (p. 5); it's the other way around. How hard is it to take a second look at 80 pages (which one intends to sell!)? Probably more problematic for me, even than these, was the lack of conceptual exfoliation and integration. A slew of 200 citations does not account for exfoliation of concepts in a book of less than 100 pages, and I definitely felt the continuity of what was present was not made as expressly clear as it could have been.
Overall, I loved the idea and approach, but the execution was a failure.
