Paul Van Stelle rated it it was amazing Jan 21, His upbringing was, as he termed it, “socialist;” his father was involved in politics and served as a member of Parliament.

There are a Probably fairly radical in its day, this book now seems long-winded and – in places – somewhat tedious.

He writes about his favorite philosophers, their lives and what they gave our world. Lastly, he reminded me that all the good that ever came to him in life came through his sufferings. I give it this rating not because I agree with all of Malcolm Muggeridge’s view of the Christian faith, but because he presents me with a helpful reminder that the pursuit of pleasure, the consumption of goods and services, these things deaden the soul and keep one from God.
