Disclaimer: he uncritically repeats the 'Dark Ages' myth, even to the extent of claiming that 'for 500 years there was essentially no progress in any scientific field or in human rights' (false; just read James Hannam's book) and 'scientific experimentation, and thus learning, was often illegal' (false; scientific experimentation was virtually non-existent in the first place thanks to the dominance of Aristotle's philosophy, and it was never illegal; see Hannam's book again).

Apart from that it's pretty good.

'Abba Antony said, "A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him saying, 'You are mad, you are not like us.'"'

Ward, Benedicta. The Sayings of the Desert Fathers (2006), Antony 25, p. 5.
