a fun read, though it makes me wish i lived near a body of water.

very much off topic: reading about pythagoras reminded that he and his buddies desperately loathed beans. here is one of my favorite quotes, not from this book so i give nothing away: Wretches, utter wretches, keep your hands from beans. it sounds like a monty python sketch, doesn't it?

I've been studying a lot of Greek philosophy lately so I was happy to know about the people and ideas he was talking about. A year ago these ideas would have been over my head.

I disagreed with his conclusions in most cases and I also felt he misrepresented or guessed a lot.

He goes about searching for truth completely different than I do. He looks to the Greeks to form his truth while I know truth (as revealed by god) and read Greek philosophy to help explain that truth.
