Anyone read it?

It's a book written by Christopher Philips in which he travels to Greece, Spain, Japan Korea, Mexico City, Chiapas, and New York and Navajo Nation. In each country, in a large group forum, he asks the six questions of Socrates - What is virtue? What is moderation? What is justice? What is courage? What is good? What is piety?

I learned more about each of those cultures in one (of his two Socrates Cafe books), than I did my first year studying sociology.

His second book, Socrates Cafe is even better.

It sounds like an interesting read.
