    2. I almost stopped reading this before I really began, because the introduction is almost impenetrable, unnecessarily thick with jargon and obscure conceptual analysis. It was immediately clear that the target audience for the book is those who are already experts in the area, not perhaps those with a casual interest. However, I pushed through and found the immediately following to be much easier - more clearly written and transparently laid out. Overall, the essays were mixed - too many seemed to [...]
