I admire anyone who feels that they can explain Baudrillard in 175 pages of comic book!

Does this work?

Yes, on the whole, I think that it does. Nobody is going to read an introduction to this philosopher and say, "Yes, I get it."

This tome leaves me, with a muddy understanding of his thoughts , and a desire to learn more: what more can be expected on any 'Beginner's Guide'?

The Introducing series are always more comprehensive and informative than they appear. They are intended to break down difficult topics into graphical form and bite-size chunks, but there is rarely any dumbing down in this process. In fact, I think sometimes too little concession is made in this respect. Foucault is difficult and subtle, and it's no mean task to explain his philosophy for the general reader even with much greater scope than this format allows. At times, then, it is this determination not to oversimplify, combined with the restrictions of the format, that make for a somewhat condensed reading experience at times. However, having read a few of these, I think this is a tendency that they all succumb to, to different extent. That said, it's still an enjoyable read, with great art.
