Orson Scott Card always comes across as grossly arrogant in his essays and writing. Even when I agree with him I find the things he’s saying so off-putting that I find myself arguing with him in my head.
Some of the essays in this book are worth reading, most of them are just Orson Scott Card talking about how important his opinions are and how much you should listen to him.
I found the bulk of this book to be unreadable and had little citation to back up many of his claims. I even agreed with him on many occasions but the voice he uses is so aggravating that I couldn’t even gain any satisfaction from reading an essay that agreed with my own feelings.
Others will probably have other experiences with these essays but I would not recommend the book.
