Utopia

Just started this little book so I am not really sure where its taking me.  This version has a lot of preample putting the book in its historical context and talks a lot about the approach taken to the translation, and compares this approach with other translations, ie its a slow start unless you are interested in that sort of thing.  I am reading this book because my wife bought it to read and then left it lying on the shelf, something had to be done!
 
Having now finished it I am left quite unsure about the book.  It has some very unusual concepts in it, but overall the way of life it describes would become very constraining for many people, so it is unlikely that it would prosper on a large scale.  However for Amish like communities you can see that it would make a viable blueprint for an alternative society.
