I am astounded after reading this book that any one woud consider this author an "intellectual." Her deductions are wrong, her facts seem to be plucked from someone's inagination, and her totally unscholarly approach to this topic is offensive to the thinking reader.
This book is most certainly defined bast a "a waste of time, money and intellectual effort." My only consolation is that I got the book from a friend and was able to return it without paying the author. I would be ashamed to let another see this book on my shelf since the books one keeps define one's character.
I must caution the readers of this review that I am not a "conservative" or a "liberal." I am able to speak 8 languages and have lived on 4 continents for extened periods of time and this lends some balance, and internationalism to my view. This is a book with an agenda and that agenda is not truth nor wisdom but probably better summed up by title of Ms. Coulter's last book, Slander. If you love US magazine, Jerry Springer, WWE and hate the way the blacks and minorities are "taking over" you will love this book.
This is a book on an intellectual giant by an intellectual midget. The author seems totally unable to grasp the works of the great philosopher and seems to think that this is the fault of Aristotle rather than his own failing. He does not have a grasp even on such things as biographical facts which are common knowledge. If one wants to read a book written by an author who is full of himself, this is the one. If one wants an understanding of the philosophy of Aristotle, avoid this book like the plague.
