ISBN10: 0812694554

Summary: You don't need a diploma in arithmancy, the friendship of a hippogriff, or even a Hogwarts Library card to discover amazing and arcane secrets in the labyrinthine world of Harry Potter.

In the book you now hold in your hands (or for more advanced students, the book you have levitated into a suitable position while you feed snacks to your owl), seventeen philosophical scholars unlock some of Hogwarts' secret panels, displaying fresh insights enlightening bot
h for sorcerers and for the more discerning Muggles.

Among the occult lore here revealed, behold the best recipe for true courage, proof that self-deception does not yield happiness, how ethics can be applied to the branch of technology known as magic, why the Mirror of Erised isn't adequate for real life, whether prophecy rules out free choice, and what dementors and boggarts can teach us about joy, fear, and the soul.

All the pages of this book are acid-free and have been individually bewitched with an anti-befuddlement incantation. Don't forget to keep your wand primed and read between the lines. Failure to observe these precautions may invite the malign influence of Vol--sorry, He Who Must Not Be Named.
