4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 30 Dec 2009

This difficult subject comes to you in easy to manage bite sized chapters which can be read in any order, depending upon which part of existentialism you fancy tackling. The user friendly language is a huge positive and the authors have really succeeded in making this hard-to-grasp- subject easy to hold !
