With that said, the impact of Aquinas on the western world's philosophy and theology alone merit a five star review. Regardless of your religious or philosophical leanings, there is absolutely no denial of the fact that this book is important. To understand the Catholic (and majority Protestant) idea of God in exacting detail, for instance, or to gain a knowledge of fine theological points, there are few books of greater value than the Summa. That said, there may be better books for any particular individual, given the sheer scale and the highly technical nature of this book. The text was written to educate theology students in the 13th century, and as such, can read like a textbook (ie., it isn't a page turner).
The Kindle edition has a brief biography of St. Thomas, and summary of his philosophy. Different articles are easily accessible via the "go to" function. The biography is somewhat interesting. The "go to" function is indispensable.
