    A monograph about the simple premise that Boltzmann entropy is equivalent to Shannon entropy.He spends the main part of the books talking about how neat his idea is and how neat it would be for everyone to get on board.Only in the copious appendices are there examples of the potential insight of this premise.It would have been better if it were like the appendices And if it included Kolmogorov complexity And if it included parastatistics.
