Good philosophy and a great read

I am usually turned off by first-year-graduate-school-pulp-fiction-fan language, but this is the best Philosophy book I have read in a long, long time. You read it in one sitting, enjoying minute by enjoying minute. It also instantly makes you go on a psychoanalytical chase to find all the mindfuckers in your life. I can now happily and accurately make the following philosophical statement: the academic tenure process is an immoral mindfuck. So is identity politics, and its daughter "diversity".
