I read 24/7: Late Capitalism and the Ends of Sleep by Jonathan Crary on

Review

Now, it is social philosophy so I should have seen it coming, but this book starts strong and then heads deep into academic-themed overwrought prose that makes it very hard to go on and quite tempting to sleep. As the argument broadens, it also weakens, suggesting a significant lack of research or confidence that most readers are fine with their analysis of recent history done in broad and questionable strokes.
