Product description


There ought to be more general philosophy books like this. Short chapters that openly ponder questions without intending to resolve them.. AC Grayling has perfected the art of a philosophical vignette. - THE HERALD

He is a philosopher engaged in what he rightly praises, adding value to life... Here is a book worth talking to. - THE GUARDIAN - Ted Honderich,

... an elegance of style, a sense of humour, and the ability to juxtapose serious musings with wise and wacky facts... and you have an easily digestible form of philosophy. - TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

Grayling is never silly, he has a wonderful fund of apt quotations... Grayling makes one ruminate. - THE LITERARY REVIEW

Book Description

The new bestseller from one of Britain's most pre-eminent philosophers and arguably the best known, A.C. Grayling
