It is by far the best (most readable, most mature, most profoundly wise, and most wonder-full, i.e. most Lewisian) of the plethora of books written about the Chronicles of Narnia.
--Peter Kreeft, Professor of philosophy at Boston College, prolific author, and C.S Lewis scholar.

Both Tolkien and Lewis believed that a book that was only worth reading by children was probably not worth reading at all. In this accessible study, Joseph Pearce helps lovers of Narnia to understand that the sense of child-like innocence, wonder, humility, and gratitude that draws us to the Chronicles is proof, not that we've entered a second childhood, but that we've matured into true adults.
-- Louis Markos, Professor in English and Scholar in Residence, Houston Baptist University and author of On the Shoulders of Hobbits: The Road to Virtue with Tolkien and Lewis.
