An omnibus of passages from the great works throughout history, Perspectives takes the reader back chronologically through centuries of Western Civilization first to Genesis, then on to the ancient Greeks and Romans, and then through the Renaissance up to the present day. With excerpts drawn from the works of the great thinkers in the humanities, philosophy, and the sciences, Perspectives I & II challenge the present day student to discover the best that was thought and said throughout the ages, and on a more pragmatic level to test the accuracy and depth of his reading comprehension. While the selected passages ascend in time, the questions that follow each excerpt challenge the reader to search for what all readers need to look for: to discover the main idea behind the writing, to read between the lines, to go beyond the facts, to infer the meaning behind the often erudite language, and to discern the author's style and attitude towards his work.

Perspectives will appeal to readers from the senior year of high school through the last year of college and beyond. The series can be read for personal enrichment, or as an enlightened method of preparation for the reading comprehension sections of such national tests as: SAT, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, and MCAT. The great thinkers and their ideas are of course worth knowing for their own sake and in their own right, but the works and the questions generated therefrom can serve not only as a stimulus to a seminar interpreting the great works, but also as a spring board for a student who wants to up his score on a national test. Perspectives will open the reader's eyes to the world of individual thought and observation, and at the same time enhance his analytical skills in reading comprehension, the logical inferences of which will redound not only on the results sent to the admissions office, but in the personal enjoyment and enrichment that will last a lifetime.
