Introduction is an easy read whereas Chesterton just never gets to the point! He goes round and round and round in his wit and I don't have the time, I've got work to do, please get to the point! That was my first impression anyway back in high school, and my last.   

That's what makes it engaging for me - it's not dry information, it's almost conversational, illustrated with clever analogies.  Although for some subjects his verbosity can be tedious, agreed.
