Through their original and transformative discussion of some of the greatest works of Western literature, from Homer's "Odyssey "to Melville's "Moby Dick, "Dreyfus and Kelly reveal how we have lost our passionate engagement with the things that gave our lives purpose, and show how, by reading our culture's classics anew, we can once again be drawn into intense involvement with the wonder and beauty of the world.

“[A]n inspirational book but a highly intelligent and impassioned one.… compelling.” —The Wall Street Journal
“Offers a meditation on the meaning of life, in a sharp, engaging style …” New York Times Book Review
