The style of this book makes it ideal for any reader. It proceeds at an agreeable pace where the reader is able to get a good grasp on each aspect of the story and then move on. It leaves one with a much deeper and fuller understanding of the history of St. Peter's College without needlessly getting bogged down in excessive details. The photographs are also a great touch, being able to see the numerous political figures and celebrities who have visited the College, the buildings in their original form, the academic gowns that seniors used to have to wear to class, and much more.
Reading this book was a real treat. As an alumnus, it gave me a feeling similar to looking through an old family album; a great warmth of familiarity of the things I knew and an appreciation for that which I learned. I don't think I can recommend this book enough.
