    The book is awesome in its most fundamental meaning. The prose is fascinating and well written and the masterpieces we have read about so far have been beautiful. We read a chapter each evening. The book is small enough to be easy to hold and share, providing enough information to peak our interest, then an internet search completes our experience.
