Well written and researched Battles explores our complex and often confounding relationship to the shifting institution of the library.

But I really enjoyed this book. I gave it five stars because I had such an enjoyable time reading it. I like reading history books that attack history from a slightly different point of view. I can only read so much political history before I want to scream. As far as intellectual history goes, the development of the library is an important one--and not as straight forward as we might think. Battles did a nice job. Kept it short and interesting while still covering a lot of ground. Gardner is, as always, a pleasant listen.
