    not really an whole book

    This was very interesting, but very short. Lots of excerpts from Wheatley's books, and some writing that fills in his history and life. Just know that it is only 90 pages long, and probably half of that is excerpts from his own writings. I would have felt more satisfied if I had known it was so short when I bought it.
