5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Tought Provoking
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...

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Tought Provoking, 6 Dec 2008
This review is from: What's Wrong with Eating People?: 33 More Perplexing Philosophy Puzzles (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well received present, 13 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: What's Wrong with Eating People?: 33 More Perplexing Philosophy Puzzles (Paperback)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty and witty, 6 Sep 2008
This review is from: What's Wrong with Eating People?: 33 More Perplexing Philosophy Puzzles (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Philosophy Phun!, 12 Sep 2008
This review is from: What's Wrong with Eating People?: 33 More Perplexing Philosophy Puzzles (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Philosophy can be fun, 28 July 2009
This review is from: What's Wrong with Eating People?: 33 More Perplexing Philosophy Puzzles (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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Dipper!, 23 Sep 2008

This review is from: What's Wrong with Eating People?: 33 More Perplexing Philosophy Puzzles (Paperback)
I thoroughly enjoyed this. It is wonderful for a busy person like me who needs something they can just dip into - but who is also badly in need of some mental stimulation! It really got my mind working. I'd certainly recommend it to anyone who bought Robot - and anyone who didn't!
