Kant is arguably the most influential modern philosopher, but also one of the most difficult. Roger Scruton tackles his exceptionally complex subject with a strong hand, exploring the background to Kant's work and showing why the Critique of Pure Reason has proved so enduring.

The author presents Kant's philosophy as something that is easy to understand and follow, although I had to listen to it various times to see that it was always that easy to grasp.
I think there is no disparity, there is no dissonance between the book's narrator and one's own in-head narrator.
I had read many things on Kant, had tried to read Kant directly a couple of times but was always beaten by the vocabulary, the huge amounts of cultural and philosophical baggage one must bring along in order to keep reading. I think this book made it very graspable and friendly.
