From the Publisher"Socrates remains a seminal figure in the history of ideas - ideas which, as Usher, a Classics professor, brilliantly proves, are not beyond the abilities of even younger readers to absorb. An intimate, memorable, outstanding introduction."
—Starred review, Kirkus Reviews
"While large in scope, Usher (who drew entirely from ancient sources, mainly Plato's dialogues) keeps the ideas clear-cut and accessible, making this Socrates for the school-age set a fine introduction to philosophy." —Starred review, Publishers Weekly
"Usher distills the essence of Socrates's thinking into approachable terms. Anyone wishing to introduce the field of philosophy to students would find this offering a useful starting point." —School Library Journal
"Parents who can't wait to introduce their elementary school progeny to Socrates will find this an original choice." —Booklist
