Ok. So, tell us about it, Kevin. What about this book caught your interest? Why should we choose it over all the other qualified candida- Wait...... :|

Actually, I'm not sure we could use this text. I doubt it, now that I'm looking at it more closely. It was first printed in 1925, but this edition is 1964. :?

I thought about that, too, but it is a reprint rather than a new edition, so I assumed it would be all right.

As for what it is that caught my eye, I assume this is the one thing Whitehead has written that is accessible for the common reader (like me!) perhaps there's more out there, but I've always assumed he was over-my-head.

I think this is okay. It still has copyright 1925 rather than having incurred a new one in the 60s.
