I found the Photographer's Eye to be the least pleasing read, due to incessant references to historic critiques.

Are you perhaps referring to John Szarkowski's The Photographer's Eye rather than Michael Freeman's The Photographer's Eye? The two have the same title, but they're very different books. It's been a while since I read my Freeman, but I don't recall any significant amount of -- if any -- historic information in there.
