Using the ancient philosophers as a guide, Mark Vernon offers a warm, engaging, thoughtful and witty take on the modern travails of sex, relationships, money, work, fame and death. This is an intriguing and enjoyable book that makes philosophy accessible and gives fresh insights into contemporary existence. Strongly recommended.
