It makes you think more thoroughly than you're accustomed to. It's not, after all, rat-tat-tat Hemingway. You can, as I did, connect his expressions of deeper meaning to modern life in clear and meaningful ways though. I used it, for example, in a speech, a section about how we're all connected and need one another to thrive. It is not an everyday book, but a reference you should appreciate.

Saint Thomas is one of the greatest Catholic Saints who translated a-lot of Aristotle's Metaphysics and merged it into Catholic Theology. I was introduced to this book when I attended Siena College. This is a great selection of some of his works.
