16 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Cliff Collis on 6 Dec. 2008
Format: Paperback
Peter Cave has written another entertaining and thought provoking book. His exploration of a variety of paradoxes and puzzles challenges our intuitions, revealing the more complex implications of seemingly straight forward situations. Written in a stimulating and amusing style, the book is very 'dipable into', with each puzzle being a self-contained chapter. However, you will still be thinking about the conundrums he raises long after you've put the book down.

Format: Paperback
Another thought-provoking book with a human and hourous side from Peter. If you enjoyed Can A Robot Be Human, you'll nejoyed this just as much. Its intelligent, entertaining and very readable. And filled with puns again.

Format: Paperback
Peter Cave returns to form with 33 more witty Philosophy puzzles. If you enjoyed 'Can a Robot be Human' you will not be disappointed. If you have not read 'Can a Robot be Human' then I suggest you purchase them both! Phantastic reads for anyone interested in philosophy.

What do you buy a young man in his early 20's? This seems to have done the trick as it seemed to be very well received either that or he is a very well-mannered young man.

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Thannoise on 28 July 2009
Format: Paperback
I had the privilege of attending Peter Cave's lectures as part of my Open University degree, so was already familiar with his incisive wit and ability to take a sideways look at many issues which perplex students .
If you want illumination, challenge, and light relief all at once, then I warmly recommend both this book and its predecessor.
You can also find Peter on YouTube.
