Review:

Reading this old Cornishman, austere and Puritan as he may be, is never dull and often wonderfully funny...>>>> (The Washington Times Magazine)

These are valuable brief studies of important thinkers, writers, and doers. They are done vividly and wittily. The author must be a remarkable if sometimes sharply judgmental man. Would we had more like him!>>>> (History)
