A beautiful celebratory tribute to the powers of one of our most undervalued skills - an ideal gift for the avid reader. 'What you are doing right now is, cosmically speaking, against the odds.' As young children, we are taught to read, but soon go on to forget just how miraculous a process it is, this turning of scratches and dots into understanding, unease and inspiration. Perhaps we need to stop and remember, stop and learn again how to read better. Damon Young shows us how to do exactly this, walking alongside some of the greatest readers who light a path for us - Borges, Plato, Woolf. Young reads passionately, selectively, surprisingly - from superhero noir to speculative realism, from Heidegger to Heinlein - and shows his reader how cultivating their inner critic can expand their own lives as well as the lives of those on the pages of the books they love.
