"The likelihood of finding an author who can narrate is about the same as finding a dancer who can sing," writes Leveen and then reads his own book himself. Hmmm! Known for his exquisite taste in folios and fountain pens, the man behind the Levenger catalog can't read as skillfully as Grover Gardner, or write as skillfully as Ernest Hemingway. Leveen is a businessman in love with the business of learning. He has been savaged by critics for adoring audiobooks and admitting that he hasn't read all the classics. But then isn't an admission of ignorance the first and essential step to learning? This is a truly useful book, clearly and earnestly presented.
