Unduly prolix

by Albert F on Mar 27, 2014

The kindest thing I can say about this book is that the writing is unduly prolix. I joined a bimonthly discussion group which had chosen this for its topic. In preparation for the third week of discussion I skipped ahead to the end of the third chapter to see what the conclusion was. I took me so long to even parse one or two of the sentences that I gave up and resigned from the group. I do not consider it my task to disentangle what the author said into what he actually meant. That is his job, not mine. I do not recommend its purchase.
