He was very guarded with his personal life and rarely let the reader glimpse parts of that... his announcements of his marriages and his divorce came as a shock since there was very little build-up or explanation before hand... so that this book enabled him to focus on the journey throughout the major areas in his intellectual, academic and professional development.We saw how and why he ended up taking the positions he did regarding his stances on certain topics, as well as the precise thought that led to him formulating his masterwork.I found this look into the mind and past of a scholarly figure I've only relatively recently discovered, but nonetheless, quickly developed an immense respect and admiration for, to be very much inspirational and moving.
