Well Educated Mind: A Guide to the Classical Education You Never Had

by Susan Bauer


Quick Overview

Surrounded by more books than ever, readers today are daunted by the classics they have left unread. "The Well-Educated Mind" is a wonderful resource for anyone wishing to explore and develop the mind's capacity to read and comprehend the "greatest hits."


Have you lost the art of reading for pleasure? Are there books you know you should read but haven't because they seem too daunting? In The Well-Educated Mind, Susan Wise Bauer provides a welcome and encouraging antidote to the distractions of our age, electronic and otherwise. In her previous book, The Well-Trained Mind, the author provided a road map of classical education for parents wishing to home-school their children, and that book is now the premier resource for home-schoolers. In this new book, Bauer takes the same elements and techniques and adapts them to the use of adult readers who want both enjoyment and self-improvement from the time they spend reading. The Well-Educated Mind offers brief, entertaining histories of five literary genres fiction, autobiography, history, drama, and poetry accompanied by detailed instructions on how to read each type. Size 1.36" H x 9.5" L x 6.44" W, 432 pages
