Best of all, you'll find a fully-illustrated set of exercises to improve your intellectual powers of memory, understanding, logical reasoning, shrewdness, foresight, circumspection, and practical wisdom.You'll also learn:The four steps to training your memory. How to know your mental powers – and their limits. Why critical thinking alone is insufficient for reaching the truth. Twenty common fallacies – and how to spot them. The key to effectively reading any book. How to set your intellect free by avoiding worldly entanglements. How to commit key truths to memory.Pius XI called St. Thomas Aquinas the “model” for those who want to “pursue their studies to the best advantage and with the greatest profit to themselves.” Leo XIII urged us all to “follow the example of St. Thomas.” Over the centuries, dozens of other popes have praised him.Surely it is time to listen to these good men, time to “go to Thomas,” to learn to think like him, and, yes, even to live like him.
