"A laudable effort . . . Davis's study offers a refreshing and affectionate look at Johnson as a presence."
"Davis, directing his book at 'the serious common reader,' turns, as one middle-aged wisdom-seeker to another, to Johnson for 'practical advice about how to live.' . . . [Davis] can be seen as following the Rambler's injunction that we ought to be reading in order to become better and wiser, to benefit our hearts and actions, as well as our minds."
