this is the best introduction to deleuze. best because it is readable staight off the page, doesn't presuppose any prior knowledge of deleuze and still manages to not simplify deleuze too much.

Having wrestled with 'Anti Oedipus' for too long, I have bought many guides to the wilfully baffling, tantalizing discourse of a recondite but somehow exciting thinker. I am now a little clearer about his enterprise, although amused at one reviewer's cavil that it is not very Deleuzean! That's EXACTLY what I liked about it, since in using, say, rhizomes as a central trope, one needs something in lucid prose to tease out a deliberately obscure, quasi-poetic mode of thinking. And 'thinking' in Deleuze is unlike that of anyone else I have read, self-indulgent and making few concessions to the reader. Clearly written and enjoyable. Just the job.

I bought this book because I felt I needed an outside perspective after getting bogged down in Deleuze's own writings. Claire Colebrooke's explanations of the terms and concepts behind Deleuze's thought were clear and very helpful. The references to Deleuze's various writings were easy to follow and this book made them easier to navigate. A great starting point for students struggling with Deleuze or anyone wanting to lay the groundwork down before diving into the original texts in detail.

this might open the door a crack for those with little familiarity with 20th century french philosophy but lacks a bit of contact with the Deleuzian style
