    Very informative and easy to read and follow along with. It's nice and bitesized, has varying philosophers and genres covered and seems to be a broad palette of introductions to thinkers and ways of thinking and living. There were a few parts in the beginning that were a bit hard to comprehend, and a lot of the last chapter I simply didn't understand - that being said, it's not the writer's fault that the philosophers' content is confusing. I recommend this book highly. And I also recommend you re Very informative and easy to read and follow along with.

    66 essays about subjectively selected philosophers and 'thinkers' with story about one work of each. Yo can read this randomly in small portions (not understanding all anyway). Among knows philosophers there are writers (as Dostoevsky and Kafka), and many new for me and very strange (was comment: Noam Chomsky described Lacan as '...charlatan'). NO TERMINOLOGY AT ALL. Looks like supposed, that You have studied philosophy. ? NO philosophers in China, India, Arab origin, etc., only Europa and USA.

    Very good. Great choice of topics (not all philosophies discussed are what I, and the authors, considered a traditional approach to the subject) that certainly made me revise my (little) understanding of the subject. I appreciated the update on contemporary philosophy. All chapters and topics are intriguingly brief, as intended, and enough to, for me, warrant further reading or file away as ho-hum.

    It's successful in giving brief explanations or introductions of different texts (philosophical or not) and their philosophies. However, the discussions in the last chapter are lengthy, making the already complicated texts included in this section even harder to understand. Despite this, I still recommend this book for those of us who are interested in philosophy but do not have time to fully study it.

    I got this book while on a study abroad to Britain in order to help with the philosophy classes that the study abroad was. It really helped me understand some of the philosophers that I had to study and was interesting to read the rest of the little summaries after the trip was over.
