Really liked it!

I'ts good to know how defend your view using critical thinking yet it is greater to master the art of Philosophy. Inside this book, I have found a lot of bizarre works from Plato. That Is helpful and can be use in everyday life.

A short book, but good

This great info on Plato basically summarized everything you need to know without reading his extensive works.
