I sense bias...

On this reading list I came across the following line that annoyed me:
"For a more advanced, controversial and partly historical (but nonetheless very clear) treatment, see John Etchemendy..."
I whole-heartedly agree that Etchemendy's books is somewhat advanced, controversial, partly historical, and very clear, but, I see no need for the snide "historical BUT clear." Clarity and historical orientation are independent.
