A long and thorough review of SKR in Me'orot,the Journal of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah (which also includes another segment in the ongoing discussion of Yoram Hazony's analysis of Rav Soloveitchik's thought). The author, Rose Waldman, is herself an interesting woman, part of the Brooklyn Satmar community who also studies and teaches at Columbia and writes for YCT. Provides her with an interesting angle on the book, as you might imagine.
