The design leaps with life: varied typography, graphic illustrations, sidebars with interesting facts and historical perspectives, intriguing quotes that could become posters. Credit should be given to the author for demonstrating the relevance of philosophy to modern life, allowing the reader to dip in and out at will. VOYA (Voice of Youth Advocates)
