Format: Paperback
This work is well-written and a good summary of what one might want to know about some very important philosophers without having to read 10 pages to be reminded of who so and so is and which theories he has developped. It uses good examples and a very good selection of facts has been made. One does not need a prior knowledge of diverse theories and information about Philosophy which makes this book a very accessible read. The illlustrations also make it pleasant to browse and the language is clear.
A great addition to your collection.

While not terribly in depth 4 Nov. 2014
By Stephen Dozeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
While not terribly in depth, it's definitely a nice coffee table book. I don't often use it for papers and more advanced stuff, but as far as giving you a starting point to thinking about some of histories biggest philosophers, it's great. The book recommendations are convenient, and it's just a generally well organized book that I'd recommend for anyone, whether looking for little gift for a tenured professor, or if someone younger seems like they'd enjoy philosophy, but don't know where to begin.
