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.

As dry as the desert
A quite dry book. Don't recommend listening to it unless you are trying to fall asleep to a guy with a dry brit accent.
