Well researched but a grating writing style,

This review is from: What is Good?: The Search for the Best Way to Live (Paperback)
Although AC Grayling clearly possesses an in depth knowledge of issues concerning how to live a 'good life' spanning most major areas of philosophical thought on the issue, his writing style is pretentious. The ideas which he explains are, by philosophical standards, not especially difficult. As a result it is easy to read the book with the impression he is using extra words when the idea could have been explained perefctly clearly in fewer. An interesting and informative read, but is badly let down by a pointlessly wordy style.
