Description

This is the fascinating and whimsical account of the twenty-five books that have influenced the life of bibliophile Rick Gekoski. Drawing from the fields of literature, psychology and philosophy and including books by Descartes, Dahl, and Dr. Seuss, Rick Gekoski trains the same ironic and analytic eye on these books and their authors that he does on himself.The result is a unique and witty book dedicated to the proposition that we are what we read.
