Theo has changed my life. If I didn't like a book when I read it alone, I always loved it after talking with Theo and our group about it. He is simply the best at what he does.

Theo has led our literature group for 20 years. To every meeting he has brought great intelligence and breadth of knowledge, along with wit and charm. Anyone having the good fortune to study with him will find riches galore.
