Disappointing, too dumbed down for the general reader

I can't really rate this book because I didn't finish it. The author's purpose in writing it escapes me totally.

But he had some good quotes. This one from The Tinkerer's Accomplice: "the pernicious tendency for the convenient assumption to become unquestioned dogma".
