Schall has written a delightfully atypical booklet approximately books, simply because he believes that (1) to be proficient is to confront the good questions about what's; that (2) many sleek scholars, in or out of college, by no means learn how to bring up, less resolution, the good questions, therefore are uneducated within the private experience; and that (3) nice books, earlier and current, which combat deeply but non-technically with those questions instead of passively mirroring pop culture with its myopia and prejudices, can fill this vacuum for a person, in or out of faculty. It includes strangely sane reflections on schooling, surprisingly reflective stories of books, and strangely discriminating booklists. simply the e-book i've got desired to provide my scholars for years."

Schall at conveying a feeling of the lifetime of the brain, few may have the audacity to write down approximately `what a pupil owes his teacher', or the allure to hold it off, or the knowledge to make it memorable. He by no means forgets that `to examine' is a transitive verb, and that its item is truth."
— Joseph Sobran, Editor, nationwide evaluation

"This is a booklet when you wish to learn and to think--about final questions of life and essence, `about time and studying, approximately humor and wonder'. it's chock-full of principles approximately cause, religion, doubt, fact, evil and good."
— John H. Bunzel, Hoover establishment, Stanford college
