'The book is clearly written and fair-minded throughout, just the sort of work one would want as a guidebook for reading an important and difficult book. In this sense, it seems clear about its audience and will be useful for a sophisticated study of Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature and also of interest to those who already have a good deal of background and familiarity with Rorty.' David Hiley, University of New Hampshire, USA
