The Overstory - Richard Powers - A Short Summary and Review

Pantheon - Adventures in History, Biography, and the Mind - Quintus Curtius - A Short Summary & Review

 


A short summary of Pantheon:

Discovering philosophical truths through history.

My favorite Quintus Curtius quote from the book:

"Yet truth and reason rarely find a favorable reception in those burdened by defeat."


Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What do you spend your time on?

How do you define courage?

My review of Pantheon:

Good essays on important and difficult topics.

The book might cause some introspection.

Definitely not for the casual reader.
