Definitely an extreme viewpoint
I had to read this book for my Honors Compostition class at North Dakota State Univ. The book is definitely a slow read, make sure you have lots of time to read it (you'll probably find yourself re-reading large chunks of it). Mill's viewpoint is definitely extreme, from my point of view. He writes from a very liberal point of view, and suggests allowing no restrictions on human liberty except when another person would be endangered. Several of his arguments seem week and he adds very strange exceptions to his ideas. The book is interesting, but not a must read.
