I'm almost done w/ it, and I must say that I agree, juni.

It's one of those books that I love not so much for the insight that it gives, but that by reading it I think that I'm a little less nuts -
It's mirroring back to me much of what I've already thought and said.
I had the same thing happen back when I was first in college when we read Thoreau and Whitman, although now I'm taking it a bit better.
Back then I actually got a bit angry; I raged, "How _dare_ they think and write what I've been thinking for the past few years over a hundred years before my birth! The _nerve_!"

Prox, may I recommend a good book while you`re in the reading mode?

Dialogues With the Devil by Taylor Caldwell

An older book, but timeless. If you read it, please share your thoughts on it
