Reviews

This is a truly superb book. A real pleasure to read, it strikes just the right balance between cutting to the chase and drawing you in, with its elegant prose and lucid formulations. The book immediately situates you within a nexus of problems you recognize as crucial, but haven’t thought your way out of in quite the way that Boothroyd has.
