First off, apologies for creating yet another thread about this individual. I know there's been a lot of spergrage from idiots on leftypol and elsewhere about him.

That out of the way, I've started reading his book to see what all the fuss was about. I'm only on the first chapter and I've got to admit I'm already extremely impressed with his ability to construct a persuasive argument. Reading through the notorious "lobsters" section, I can see the ideological content embedded in there, such as implicit naturalistic fallacy to justify hierarchy in human society and spurious use of the Pareto principle but it's cemented in well.

If you've not looked at this book, you might want to add it to your reading list. I'd appreciate advice from anyone who's read the book and spotted how the text functions beyond what I've noticed so far.
