From the Back Cover:

One of the world's most extraordinary writers addresses directly the prime question before us all: how to think for ourselves, how to understand what we know, how to pick a path in a world deluged with opinions and information, how to look at our society and ourselves with fresh eyes. A small book with high impact and enormous carrying power.
