This book made me want to stop my life and read all of Chesterton's works. Of course, that's not likely to happen anytime soon, so I value even more Dale Ahlquist's expert summarizing of some of Chesterton's most important work. His chapters are easy to read and whet the appetite for more. I find myself referring back to what I've read here when I read one of Chesterton's books.
This book serves as both an indispensable reference and a work of great writing in its own right. Ahlquist has done a service to the rest of us by making Chesterton accessible.
