Read full description of the books:
Mr. Mamet needs to take a break from drama and study a bit more philosophy if he wants his essays to have the same power as his plays. This collection suffers from too much sophistry, redundancy, and strawman argument and too little reason. He does have some great nuggets when he comments within his realm of knowledge like his advice to actors which states, "be what you wish to seem" but when he attempts political commentary, gender identity or epistemology he comes off as a demagogic and insecure narcissist.
