Brilliant but difficult
This is an extremely rigorous text because, in order to arrive at the ideas they present, Deleuze and Guattari employ a vast body of knowledge having come from their interpretations of many European thinkers whom North Americans have scarcely studied. Their use of a series of novel and seemingly bizarre concepts to explain these ideas may deter some readers, but I strongly urge all readers to take their time and read it through. The ideas are brilliant and worth the effort that the struggle to understand the book may involve. It can occasionaly be very humorous as well, which can make its reading fun. The book may be the single greatest attack on the psychology within which late capitalism envelops individuals, and may also serve as a response to that repression. As this is the first of two volumes on related themes, I highly recommend its amazing sequel as well.
