The Whole Five Feet

The Whole Five Feet by Christopher BehaA smart, big-hearted, and inspiring memoir about rediscovering the great books—and their timeless wisdom—by a young man who set out to read all 22,000 pages of the Harvard Classics one hundred years after their original publication.

Equal parts memoir and intellectual excursion, The Whole Five Feetis the story of a modern young man who spends a year in passionate engagement with the past. By living his own life while reading the best thinkers that Western civilization has produced, he rediscovers the relevance of the great books and delivers a wise, hopeful, and immensely satisfying meditation on what they can teach us about life and death, and how to navigate both in the present tense.
