The Intellectual Devotional edited by David S. Kidder and Noah D. Oppenheim

You’d think with two editors there would be fewer typos and layout mistakes. Some topics were not extremely well explained, leading me to believe the editors were not extremely well versed on some of the topics they were editing. And devoting 1/7th of the lessons to music was way too much for my Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge interest in musical education. But other than that, it was a great bathroom book.



Millions of Americans keep bedside books of prayer and meditative reflection – collections of daily passages to stimulate spiritual thought and advancement. The Intellectual Devotional is a secular version of the same – a collection of 365 short lessons that will inspire and invigorate the reader every day of the year. Each daily digest of wisdom is drawn from one of seven fields of knowledge: history, literature, philosophy, mathematics and science, religion, fine arts, and music.
