    Quite a good book on the face of it, but as it was originally written in Italian, the soul will have been taken out of it during translation. It pretty much always happens. Great man though.

    I agree he was an awesome man, I am shocked by how so many in our society have relatively immature mindsets ( and that is using the most innocuous term I can conceive), what they need is a brilliant thinker like Levi to explain why thinking in such s Manichaen model is harmful .
