The Art of Reading: "Young nails it" (Publishers Weekly)

In April of this year, the US edition of The Art of Reading will be out. The first review is in, courtesy of Publishers Weekly. It's a starred review, which is nice.

Philosopher Young (Philosophy in the Garden) investigates the act of reading with essays on six virtues he sees exemplified by it—namely curiosity, patience, courage, pride, temperance, and justice—in this brisk and delightful collection. Its short length belies a book heavy with insight, creativity, and wit. [...] This literary study is serious but also witty and fun—a tough balance to strike, but Young nails it.

You can read the whole review here.
