The Examined Life: How We Lose and Find Ourselves
The Examined Life: How We Lose and Find Ourselves

2.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight read does not live up to promise of title, 7 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Case studies and biographical accounts can be rich reading experiences but this compendium of short selections was very disappointing. The accounts are too short and the anonymised characterisations too generic to amount to much beyond a series of anecdotes. Searching analysis and interpretation is not what you will find here. The sections hardly amount to 'examined lives' and this is an easy and undemanding (also superficial and unsatisfying) read for the most part.
