*****************************************************
The Reading Odyssey method
*****************************************************

We have a method that makes the mind-blowing experience of reading great books possible for most adults.

 

You don't need to be a scholar. You don't need a master's degree of PhD. 

 

What do you need? 

 

To be curious. To know how to read. To skip stuff you don't understand. And to ask questions.

 

And you need to be willing to try reading a book - like Herdotus, Darwin, Plato, or, in this case, Homer.

 

So, how does it work?

* Community of adult readers

 * Led by a moderator

* In partnership with leading scholars

* Phone-based monthly meetings (with toll-free phone number)

* Free (veterans may donate) 

It's simple and we've done it a lot since we began in 2005. 

 

Our guarantee
If you join us and do the monthly reading, skip the passages that confuse you, ask your moderator and our partner scholars for help, then you will finish a great book and be exhilirated and inspired by the experience. Or your money back.

 

We take no responsibility for the innovation and creativity that will come from time travel
We take no responsibility for what cool thoughts and ideas you will have nor for the new ways you'll think, see and lead after time traveling via reading a really good book with us. 

 

Come discover humanity's best-kept secret
These books are one of humanity's best kept secrets - these wonderful, centuries-tested books have been masquerarding as boring, dusty, conservative, irrelavant old tracts. Come discover otherwise.
