Wow! This book has helped me understand the history of philosophy better than any college course. So readable for what I had thought was a dry topic. It wasn't dry at all in this format.
Amazing and excellent, this book will teach, entertain and enlighten all at once. It is mostly a good course in philosophy, but there is also a metaphysical mystery going on that only serves to illustrate and highlight the philosophical points being made. Highly recommended!
Great book and an amazing overview of western philosophy in the process. Only down side--odd ending. But still very much worth the read.
Very interesting read about philosophy and life. Like comming out of the rabbit hole.
