It’s not very often that I read a book that captivated me. This one I can say I read through as fast as I could as responsibilities allowed. You can say I felt similar to Nietzsche when he first read Schopenhauer.

What?! There had been the argument on part of the Grek polis that the philosophers were really wannabe TYRANTS and one of them, Critias — a student of Socrates — actually tried to become one.
