With his original trilogy of books, beginning with “Enlightenment The Damnedest Thing”, Jed McKenna’s impact on me has been profound. The clarity, the humour, the skilful writing, has all made his communication all the more profound. But with “The Theory of Everything”, it’s all turned pear-shape. Yes, the humour is still there, and yes, there is an occasional glimpse of profundity (especially Jed's critique of science), but the writing is now inconsistent and repetitive. As well as verbose and convoluted. Apart from a few highlights worth reading and reflecting upon, the rest is tedious and overblown. A shame, methinks Jed should have let the writing go after completing the trilogy – there really was nothing more to say.
