'According to existentialists, selecting this book is an active choice for which the reader is responsible. Cox, who earned his doctorate in philosophy in the UK writing on Sartre, presents an accessible overview of this philosophical worldview, its path to living an authentic life, and existential counseling (which sounds akin to cognitive behavioral therapy) as a means to this end. The book includes suggested further reading.' --Eithne, O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.
'I have recommended How to be an Existentialist to many people and all have gained a clearer understanding of Sartre than they had before... Cox has achieved something extremely impressive here. He has written something short and simple while not losing any of the depth and subtlety.' --Existential Analysis
