If you read the original essay, there is not much to recommend about the book. It taught me very little, has no data tables, no plots, no figures. Numbers are only mentioned in the text and sources are only given in the back of the book. There were a few interesting works mentioned, but basically the book is just a longer and more repetitive version of the essay.
Hard to say whether to give this 2 or 3 stars. Generally the author has truth on his side. Perhaps 3 then.
