Christopher Schlegel (http://www.christopherschlegel.com) says: "I have the book. It is wonderful. I am up to & currently reading the Aquinas chapter. Thank you for this book, Burgess. To me, it is just as irreplacable as The Aristotle Adventure. Well done."
B. Schofield, in an Amazon Listmania list, says: "Mr. Laughlin does it again [with The Power and the Glory]. His first book, The Aristotle Adventure was an enjoyable read and well worth your time. This one is also strictly for those interested in ideas. Five stars."
Frank Shulwolf says, "I enjoyed The Power and the Glory very much. It's got a permanent spot on my ebook shelf. I might add that a disproportionate amount of the book is now highlighted."
On Facebook, Rohin Gupta says, "I just reached Kant's chapter in The Power and the Glory a few days back. I must say Burgess, you have researched very deeply, not only the content but also its evolution."
Jim Woods (http://prometheusinquiry.blogspot.com/) says: "I enjoyed reading The Power and The Glory. Having just finished it, I have the following urgent action items: (1) make a donation to The Ayn Rand Institute, (2) buy the second edition of Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology, (3) buy The Aristotle Adventure, and (4) get some sleep because I have a morning discussion with friends about your book. Thanks for offering such a great trade of values with me."
