    1. I'm so glad that Brian Davies has written this wonderful guide and commentary for first time readers. Unlike so many existing commentaries, this is accessible to the non-specialist, and even to the student who is not well versed in Aristotle. Highly recommended to those who want to learn Aquinas but are too daunted by the task!
