The author of this book I think does not take the time to carefully examine Hegel's contributions and to grasp his influence. He concentrates instead on criticizing Hegel, to the point where one wonders whether the author's intent is really to help the reader understand Hegel or just to see how cleverly he can insult him. For example, he spends rather a lot of attention for such a short book on Hegel's affair with his landlady - why?
I like a good poke at a pompous figure, and I have no special love for Hegel, but when I buy a book like this I hope for some insights even in the midst of criticism, and I expect the author to help me gain some clarity on the subject. Instead I got a crude body slam.

This is more like a slap in the face. The writer is more interested in pulling off the cynical tone that Fitzgerald criticizes in This Side of Paradise. How useful is this review if you haven't read Fitzgerald? About as useful as this book is to illuminating Hegel if you haven't read Hegel. Stay away.
