Shirong Lou reviews On Patience at Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews:
"By taking the road less travelled, Pianalto has done a great service to virtue ethics by reclaiming the long-neglected virtue of patience. His excellent book has thrust the virtue of patience to the foreground of the contemporary revival of virtue ethics, and will spark widespread philosophical interest in examining the nature of patience and its intricate relationship with other virtues that have long enjoyed the spotlight."

From the back cover:
“Matthew Pianalto’s book is a clear, subtle, and at times profound reflection on a theme of abiding importance in human life, one that is especially relevant right now. His writing on patience, linking it with a wide range of other themes, in fact exemplifies the quality he explores. Pianalto lets ideas come to him, and he helps their complex interest unfold in rich and illuminating ways.”
— Christopher Cordner, University of Melbourne
