I read this book over the summer, so I'm a little late on me review. This book took me about four weeks to read. Although the book isn't all too long, it required more studying that books you may be used to. John Locke has remained on my top five favorite philosphers, however, I feel he has always had trouble with clarity. He uses many examples in this book to illustrate "simple ideas" and "complex ideas;" however, if you don't understand the premises to all his arguments it will be very difficult to continue throughout the reading. I highly recommend this book to philosophy students, scholars, and those interested in past thinkers.
