Reviews

'There is the book; and here is your mind.' Adler and Van Doren's suggestions on how to connect the two will make you nostalgic for a slower, more earnest, less trivial time.--Anne Fadiman
It shows concretely how the serious work of proper reading may be accomplished and how much it may yield in the way of instruction and delight.-- "The New Yorker"
These four hundred pages are packed full of high matters which no one solicitous of the future of American culture can afford to overlook.--Jacques Barzun
