    Moderately Interesting

    I like it -- with reservations. Some entries I find arguable. I agree with one review regarding the type size - it is very small-but still readable. It does make you think and that's a good thing.

    A good read for those of us who lead an interrupted life

    This book provides a summary of many varied topics ranging from classic literature, philosophy, religion, music, arts, history, and biographies etc... Each page represents a given day of the year with a different topic for each. It's perfect reading for those of us who just can't find enough uninterrupted time to read for more than 20-30 minutes at a time. For example, it¿s perfect for rail commuting, air flights, hiking and the occasional bathroom break. The content is interesting, concise and does broaden a person¿s knowledge. For example, there is a timely explanation on the origins of the Shiites and Sunni sects of the Muslim faith that I found interesting. The are just too many topics to include in this brief review. Overall I think it¿s a good book but could be improved with a better lay-out out in terms of organization of content, type-face and formatting. Other than that, I recommend this book for anybody seeking to broaden their knowledge.

    Intellectually Stimulating!

    The Intellectual Devotional is a book filled with interesting historical and artistic information. The book will take your mind on an adventure and stimulate your brain cells. However, the book falls short in that the information is not in-depth. But you could always google the topic for more information!

    A great resource

    I enjoyed the book from a resource perspective. It is probably not something I would read everyday (as suggested)
