This review is from: Ideas That Matter: A Personal Guide for the 21st Century: Key Concepts for the 21st Century (Hardcover)
Prior to reading this book I was quite out of my depth in any discussion about current affairs - either squirming with boredom or inflamed by the media, generally baffled, uneasy, uninformed and incapable of sharing an opinion.
Ideas That Matter has changed that.
This book provides a solid framework for thinking about the diversity of political, economic, social and religious ideas. It is structured to be easy to dip into. Each section is written in a clear, logical style with plenty of facts and humour. The writer transforms the ghastly chore of Thinking into an engaging and interesting occupation. Grayling's writing is inspiring and should prove capable of launching any reasonably intelligent person into their own explorations and investigations.
In my opinion Professor Grayling is a fine teacher.
