While the examples Schelling provides—such as racial organization in a neighborhood—clearly illustrate the concepts, they do not feel as relevant as they did in the late seventies. It is true that such events are important, but they are no longer attention-grabbing front page news.
Schelling offers many examples of human behavior in the first half of the book and discusses critical mass, or the idea that people base their actions, among other things, on the number of people who will take part in the action.

Anyone interested in the nitty-gritty of such processes should pick up the book. The second half of the book is more purely illustrative than instructive.
It seems as though a separate book should be written for the three issues he discusses, namely neighborhood racial tensions, social interaction, and gene selection. The social interaction section especially, is more math-heavy; while it is nothing more complicated than basic arithmetic and algebra, its sheer volume is overwhelming. Had Schelling done that, the book would have been more memorable.
In short, the book is informative, but just not very enjoyable. Perhaps in an attempt to liven up the book, Schelling provides too many examples for concepts that only require one or two. At one point, he even tries to make the book more interactive, coaxing the reader to toss coins in order to better understand how a neighborhood might be spread out racially. At least Schelling recognizes some of his missteps. A humble tone peaks out in several non-didactic portions of the book.
