5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful book 16 Nov 2012
By M-E Raw
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This gives a brief outline of many different thoughts and philosophies. A really good book for looking up things for a brief overview. I should think that those on University challenge would be pleased to have it for revision.
