I get the impression that this is a summary book rather than a detailed exploration in its own right. It reads like the summation of a life of studying other people's literature and teachings, and then picking out the highlights to form a highly concise overview. That overview is presented both in prose and in picture, so you have to resist the temptation to just glance over the diagrams, as they have a lot of that summary within them. It's all great fun, and a pretty easy read, but I can't help but wonder if the complete lack of fleshing out makes it a bit of a boot-camp headache. There are hundreds of ideas and tit-bits of information presented in a very compact and hard-hitting manner.
One thing that I don't like is the words and sections of text which are blacked out a-la censorship and redaction. Whilst I'm sure this adds to the ironic nature of the book and even perhaps adds to its quirky charm, I just found it irritating wasting time trying to work out what the words were. It interrupts your attention and detracts from the book's otherwise interesting messages.

But if you're uninitiated, this is a great, simple-to-read crash course on how we are being manipulated every day, all the time.
The only thing that REALLY bothers me is its constant misspelling of its (possessive) as it's. Perhaps an ungrammatical way of manipulating my emotions? :-\
