Product Details


“A formidable combination of storytelling and philosophy that might change your life.”The Times

“[Ahmari] is a master storyteller. . . . Readers of Sohrab Ahmari’s new book will be grateful to him for reminding us of how serious the loss [of our traditions] could turn out to be.”First Things

“Ahmari’s elegantly written book matters because it seeks to give moral voice to what so far has mainly been a populist scream against the values of elite liberalism.”—Bret Stephens, The New York Times

“A vital and provocative read.”The Telegraph

“Even those who reject Ahmari’s categories and conclusions will still admire and be edified by the stories he has to tell.”National Review

“A triumph of intellectual hagiography that leads the reader confidently into deep waters.”Commentary

“He frames the questions we all need to ponder and identifies many topics that families and religious leaders need to address—the sooner, the better.”The New Criterion

“Ahmari’s latest book presents compelling critiques of the modern understanding of human freedom.”The American Conservative

“Ahmari’s prose is always clear, and he manages to articulate sophisticated arguments without ever sounding academic or getting lost in minutia.”Washington Examiner

“Ahmari introduces a generation (and more) to the spiritual patrimony of which they have been robbed.”Spectator World

“The urgent need for this work cannot be doubted.”National Catholic Register

“The quality that makes [Ahmari] a valuable thinker for our current moment is the same one that made him write this book in the way that he did: his willingness to take risks.”City Journal

“Sohrab Ahmari offers more than a vivid and learned defense of traditionalism. With fatherly love, he leads his son—and us—on a fearless consideration of life’s big questions.”—Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York

“A serious—and seriously readable—book about the deep questions that our shallow age has foolishly tried to dodge.”—Douglas Murray, bestselling author of The Madness of Crowds

“A unique and hopeful book that reminds us that the human person is made for great and beautiful things—far more than the vision of life offered by our society today.”—Most Reverend José H. Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles
