Read full description of the books:
The first half of the book was great. It is chock full of provocative critique of "modern" society, right down to our use of language and perceptions of time. This is a sorely needed perspective as we face numerous social and ecological challenges. The second half of the book was a little more difficult to get through, as several chapters consisted almost entirely of lists of book and news article titles in an effort to prognosticate a growing dissatisfaction with society verging on open revolt, which obviously has yet to materialize. I was also expecting a more direct critique of the positivist, techno-industrial utopia put forth by Marx, DeBord, et al. Nevertheless, the book is well worth a read even for just the first few chapters alone. It will force anyone to question the fundamental ways in which they interact with reality and how those interactions are deliberately and maliciously corrupted by the society we live in.
