"The fascinating, informative Wooden Books series blends ancient wisdom and modern knowledge. The books . . . will stimulate more thinking and subsequent 'Eureka' moments than a dozen novels laced with narrative innovation and postmodern stylings."The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The books are thin, impeccably designed, and will stimulate more thinking and subsequent 'Eureka' moments than a dozen novels laced with narrative innovations and postmodern stylings."
