Much like their second effort, Bobby Fischer Goes to War, the authors investigate a pivotal moment in 20th Century philosophy.
The book is very detailed, outlining the history of both Wittgenstien, Popper and others who witnessed an important argument between two philosophical giants. They also interview those still alive who witnessed the heated discussion that allegedly ended with Wittgenstien shaking a poker at Popper.
The authors also outline the importance of the exchange by explaining in depth why the two philosophical figures and their ideas mattered. They also address how the discussion continues to influence thought today.
