It's an excellent book. I'm pleased to see that he's posted the last few chapters; I may want to go back and read them now.

However, I also notice that he seems to have moved away from his opinion that anarcho-capitalism generates the most efficient rules. (This, indeed, is almost all of the reason why I like anarcho-capitalism.) Similarly, most of his book is about which rules are efficient; he leaves the question as to which systems make the best rules to the last chapter, where he states that "the jury is still out" on the question.
