Enjoyed this book very much. Received in good condition and on time.

Paulo55

Excellent after first 10 pages

by Paulo55 on Nov 6, 2008

If you can keep awake for the first 10 pages the book is excelent. The non-contradition method of Socrates is probably flawless. It can bring many discussions about politics and education that could unfold in positive insights.
