Highly recommended for just about anyone interested in philosophy and epistemology, especially as an introduction.
A succinct and compelling introduction to objective truths and philosophical ideas that we take for granted and that many modern "intellectuals" mistakenly dismiss. In my opinion, the book serves as a great guide to "how to think," arguing that speculation and challenging one's own fundamental beliefs are not only healthy but necessary for anyone genuinely concerned with Truth. Despite their simplicity, some of the concepts presenting in the book are not easy to grasp, especially if you've never toyed with them before. But Patterson introduces and explores them in a way that most can comprehend, be it through analogy, abstract placeholders, or real-world example. If anything, the book can feel a bit repetitive as Patterson often restates and rewords the same premise, but the different formulations were extremely helpful; if I couldn't quite grasp one formulation, another would help clear it up.
