Schall has written a delightfully ordinary e-book approximately books, simply because he believes that (1) to be proficient is to confront the nice questions on what's; that (2) many sleek scholars, in or out of faculty, by no means learn how to elevate, less resolution, the nice questions, hence are uneducated within the private feel; 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 somebody, in or out of faculty. It comprises surprisingly sane reflections on schooling, surprisingly reflective studies 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 could have the audacity to jot 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 research' is a transitive verb, and that its item is truth."
— Joseph Sobran, Editor, nationwide overview

"This is a e-book if you happen to wish to learn and to think--about final questions of life and essence, `about time and studying, approximately humor and wonder'. it truly is chock-full of rules approximately cause, religion, doubt, fact, evil and good."
— John H. Bunzel, Hoover establishment, Stanford collage
