publishers weekly seems to have it in for certain authors. though this is the only book of dekkers i have read to this point, i have found that good ol' pw seems to rip him right and left in other reviews. this mediocre description, just like all the others, are treated as though the book was an original english work. the man is flippin' DUTCH!!! any book by dekkers written in english is a TRANSLATION people... and this is a damned fine one at that. pw reviewers are trying to take themselves way too seriously. this book is insightful, refreshing, and as they say, requires a savvy reader (something they dont seem to have the luxury of). the serious undertones are contrasted wonderfully with light-hearted situational comparisons, and the idea of 'preserving death through the destruction of new life,' particularly in historical site preservation, is a well developed and unconventional position. this book will make you think. hard. one of those that you read some pages at least twice. i loved it.Was this review helpful?
