Reviews

I would never have guessed that so slim a volume could so richly pique my curiosity about curiosity. Stuffed with facts, ideas, questions, quotes, musings, findings, puzzles, mysteries, and stories, this is a book-as Montaigne said of travel-with which to 'rub and polish' one's brain. It's the most delightful thing I've read about the mind in quite some time - New York TimesAn inspiring read that gives lie to the old saying that ignorance is bliss - Good Book GuideA lovely, erudite exploration of what it is that makes us human - Independent on SundayLeslie . . . writes convincingly . . . about the human need and desire to learn deeply and develop expertise - Wall Street Journal
