I was hoping for a general introduction to the topic, but was disappointed to instead find an extremely slanted critique of postmodernism. I don't know why this anti-postmodernism tract was given the general and misleading title of "postmodernism." The author does provide arguments against postmodernism, but also frequently simply dismisses or belittles postmodernist ideas without actually refuting them or demonstrating any actual flaws. He will, for example, in passing refer to postmodernist concepts as "shallow," "uninspiring," "merely conceptual," etc. without justifying his own personal interpretation. If you're looking for an anti-postmodernism book, look no further. Otherwise, you'd do better to read something else.

Dense, but important start
I really enjoyed the narration and content. Very important in understanding the thought processes of many of our young people and the portion of our society that lean left.
