Spoiler-ific review

Here was a short book about Rene Descartes, discussing his personal history, his philosophy and his scientific achievements. I chose to read this because I want to read more nonfiction this year, including more philosophy in particular.

Do you want to learn about Descartes? Read this. It was a fast easy read, a good introductory source if you’re just beginning to research the man in question, but not a good source if you want something more substantial.

I think therefore I am!
