Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 30 August 2010
The book has an excellent and useful bibliography and most informative notes - hence the two stars. The actual content of the book, however, has little if anything to commend it. The author's insistence on presenting everything in Sellars and Yeatman style means that what content there is can only be reached by suffering a morass of whimsy and attempts, mostly unsuccessful, at humour. This is odd, considering that considerable research was undertaken to produce it. I suggest, therefore, that the book is used purely as a starting point for one's own researches; and that the strange bias against Johnson is treated with the contempt it deserves. It is true that there are few books that make more than a superficial attempt at addressing the subject, but you'll have to look beyond this disappointing effort.
