I’m having trouble finishing this book. When I first got it I thought I might have a hard time getting into it. However, I found it was very accessible and somewhat interesting. It didn’t really hold my interest for very long, though. It’s a little too scholarly for me. The book would probably fit nicely into academia. I just couldn’t relate very well to Plato, Aristotle, Chaucer and “old” guys like that, because I haven’t read them.
I did find myself thinking a bit differently about another one of my books, so this book has “reached” me in a way.
I probably would have liked it more (and read more) had it contained more contemporary references. I haven’t given up on it totally, but I think I’ll set it aside for the time being.
