    Story
    "The Author Lives up to his Reputation"
    What did you love best about Popular Lectures on Logic?

    The author is an absolute genius. I had heard about him, but not really believed the (it seemed to me) hyperbolic claims about his intellect. Now I believe. Top 5


    What other book might you compare Popular Lectures on Logic to and why?

    New Essays Concerning Human Understanding, by Leibniz


    What does J.-M. Kuczynski bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Understanding, and a certain humor


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I liked the dialogue about rationality


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. Written for audio, to boot.
