3.0 out of 5 stars A short book reporting on a conference., 8 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silence and Honey Cakes: The Wisdom of the Desert (Paperback)
Not being an accademic I found that I had to read this book with a dictionary to hand which in itself was good as it taught me a lot of new words. The content was not as I expected as it only touched on a small amount of the wisdom of the desert but it was very sensatively written and I enjoyed the question and answer session at the end. I admit that I didn't understand some things at all and became annoyed at one point when the author was explaining the difference between the individual and the person which seemed to me just accademic rhetoric, probably because I worked with people with learning disabilities and was taught that we are all individuals and the argument just complicated something that appears quite straight forward. I do, however, greatly admire Dr Williams's immense capacity for academia and would heartily recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning more about the discipline and advantages of silence.
