I Thoroughly enjoyed the book, and even more so the author. The book is full of positive takes on many things that were considered to be the opposite at the time. He wrote comparisons of one philosopher to another, or one leader to another. He also wrote short essays that at times appeared comedic, yet were written with such earnest, I thikn his personality lifted the text upward as he wrote it. He also was a traveling spokesman - a philosopher who studied his subject matter deeply, and translated it into something better than it started out to be.
I recommend this to those who are new at the studies of Philosophy as well as those who are well written in it.
