What a nice man!! Prof. Maguire was just one of the sweetest men i've ever met. He had a very laid-back attitude, and knew a lot about the material we read. I liked the way class was structured: first, Prof. Maguire would give background material on what we were reading, then a student would give a presentation, then we had a 10 minute break which we all loved and appreciated, and then we would have a discussion for the rest of the class. It did get a bit boring at times, but I really loved this class and I learned a lot. By the end of the second semester with Prof. Maguire, I really learned how to read quickly and analyze a difficult book or passage. It became easy and fun.
