If you are the right sort of person this is a very good book. It reminds me somewhat of Beowulf in that they are both books that seem to hover in the twilight between "literature" and "mythology."
An in-depth, historical examination of the "serpent" in religious/spiritual life of man.
My rating is based on my enjoyment of this work as a story, not on my enjoyment of it as an exposition of an idea and problem. This is because, as far as I can see, this story is little more than an essay that points out and examines the modern annihilation of free time. If it had been written as an essay outright I would give it a hight rating, but the attempt to clothe this essay with characters and a plot appeared thin to me.
This is an excellently written piece but the action and appeal of it is entirely psychological, there is no "action" and its nuances obscure, but if you enjoy a complex, meditative book about people and their emotions, it is supurb.
If you are looking for a book that dissects the mechanics of skillful warfare then this book is what you are looking for. The actual book itself is not very long but over six hours of commentary and background information are appended after it which give interesting and useful facts about the book and its theories.
