Book Report

This was such a joy to read! It is a short book, under 200 pages, yet the depth, beauty, and wisdom of this book stand out as a giant. It starts with a view of the Socratic Questioning exercise being used, which was delightful. His second book The Apology was the one that did it for me.. all 4 books inside the one, being Euthyphro, The Apology, Crito, and Phaedo have so much to offer in perspective it took me quite a bit of time to really chew on its meat. I recommend this book to any and all that would like to deepen their rational thinking muscles, as well as their view of the world and its wonders. Thank you.
