Format: Hardcover
Philosophy is one of those subjects you have to teach yourself in the UK and I cannot think of a more interesting, entertaining way of starting off than with this book. It breaks down the subject into easy-to-handle pieces that are easy to understand, even when the concepts are complex and taxing. It also follows the history of thought and ideas by starting off with the very earliest philosophers and bringing us up to date with more recent philosophical arguments.
Anyone wishing to know more about the subject will be hard-pushed to find a better, more accessible or user-friendly book than this. Five stars.

I thought this book was great. Well written with all the key stuff. OK - it doesn't go into depth but it filled in lots of gaps for me and introduced me to lots of philosophers I'd never heard of. This is a subject I've been wanting to explore and this book gave me a fab introduction. And not just for dinner parties.

Format: Hardcover
This book is obviously aimed at the complete novice and the style of writing suits the cause well. However if your looking for a book from which you can actually learn some serious philosophy I would suggest buying something else.

This book is very much a "pub knowledge" book in that it comprises of small interesting facts as opposed to explanations and introductions to philosophical theories. The blurb on the back of the book further proves my point as it states - "Quips, quotes and conundrums to help you sound knowledgeable at diner parties".

don't get me wrong this book is competently written and well presented but I feel it is a bit ambiguous as to what it is going to provide the reader.

So if you just want some intellectual snippets to use at the pub and impress your friends than you cant go wrong with this book.
But if you are actually interested in learning about Philosophy then I would strongly suggest buying something else.

Format: Paperback
....at what it does, which is not to provide an 'in-depth' overview of the development and main ideas of Western philosophy and neither anywhere, front or back, does it claim to do this! What it is is a kind of succinct 'bluffers guide' to philosophy so that, when encountered, in more serious tomes that do claim to acquaint the reader with more than a passing view of the terrain they will have some familiarity.

It wets the appetite and definitely made this reader hungry for more!

I got to the end and just about read it all and am now trying to decide what I have learned! Not a book for the novice, I think. Maybe I should have started with philosophy for dummies? The book shows what the great minds were thinking about and how it has all changed/developed over time (as knowledge has Increased?) But it's not dampened my 'casual' interest in the subject which was started by Monty python!!!
