No Bullshit? What a Disappointment!

"When I first picked up this book, I was looking forward to a leisurely reading on obscurantist Heideggerian bullshit. I was wrong. But once I got over my deep disappointment that the book was, in fact, intelligible and not littered with ramblings about Dasein, I began to appreciate the book for what it was." — Critical Theory Blog

I just re-read Frankfurt's "On Bullshit," so I was struck by the review bite above, on the publisher's website, of a book I learned about via e-mail: Social Acceleration by Hartmut Rosa. (It looks a bit daunting, Dasein or not--though I can usually hang with Dasein talk--and possibly worth a look.)
