Review Sections

Each review consists of two sections, a summary and an opinion. The summary section is a fairly detailed, annotated table of contents. Statements are either direct quotes from the book or directly express the author's views as stated in the book. The Summary should give you a good idea what the book is about and help you decide if you want to buy it. The opinion section is where I spout off on my own views and reactions to the book, contents, author, style or whatever else strikes me as comment-worthy. All opinions are mine and not the author's.

Hopefully, you will find here contextual comments and cross-references sufficient to allow pursuing a broad topic across various authors and presentations. My goal is not so much to display the books as it is to open a pathway to an in-depth study of the subject matter.

On the other hand, I have obviously not made any attempt to restate more than a tiny fraction of the content of any book. The tome itself remains the primary source of any content referred to here.
