This is a book that has been recommended you me many times over the years. I finally broke down and listened to it expecting that I would fall in love with it quickly. Sadly I found I had to force myself to finish. Chesterton is first and foremost a journalist, very opinioned and clever but he is also a horrible philosopher. I am pretty sure he had never read most of the people he criticized as he misrepresents many of the things they said, and uses circular logic to defend his own position. He is great if you want to enjoy his clever wit, but don’t confuse this with real philosophy.
