The Intellectual Devotional Modern Culture  free pdf When "The Intellectual Devotional" debuted in the fall of 2006, it became an instant national bestseller.

From War and Peace to Catcher in the Rye, from Beethoven to John Lennon, from H. L. Mencken to Marilyn Monroe, from Andy Warhol to American Idol--the defining events and figures from literature, music, film, sports, and pop culture are served up in morsels of daily wisdom that will revive forgotten knowledge and open new horizons of intellectual discovery.
