I was unsurpised that the top reviewer of this book was a Masters student. Reading it during my first year of university study, I found Giddens' style to be dense, complicated and not very inviting to the novice reader. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the portion of the text that I was able to grasp, especially the points that he makes about Ontological Anxiety being the root of many identity crises in the modern age.
Most striking from this book is the concept that "I am me" is not a universal statement, but is historically situated. Our predecessors had a different understanding of what it means to be "me" than we do.
I'd recommend this book to experienced Sociology students and to graduates, who might enjoy it more than their junior counterparts. Indeed, I'd probably recommend it to myself in a couple of years.
