Well, fuck, I just started part 2. I didn't really notice / wasn't really bothered by the tone so far. I'll definitely try to read as far as needed for me to solidify my own opinion on the book.

Nice review, keep 'em coming.

The tone didn't grate on me until Part 2. It was sort of like "okay, he's a professor and I'm getting schooled." then it was "Okay, he has no respect for me whatsoever and sees the world as numbers." then it was "You seriously just said I'd be happier doing this thing rather than this other thing because my definition of 'happiness' is incorrect. Eat a dick."
