‘Homage by beloved author, broadcaster, educationalist and communicator John Quinn invites us into the company of fifty great minds with the legacy of their reminiscences, perspectives, reflections, experiences and advice. The narratives are astonishing in their beauty, depth and breath. More than a book, Homage is a multidisciplinary compendium of erudition, inspiration and wisdom. This book pays homage to history, to those who have gone before us, those who inform us now and those who will shape the future. By bringing our attention to these minds John Quinn gifts us with a glorious compilation to savour and to share with all those in our lives about whom we care.’
