Product Description

Review

"In brisk, pithy, jargon-free prose, Grayling opens issues for ordinary readers, leaving them with something to think about without, much of the time, trying to settle anything." "Library Journal" on "The Mystery of Things""

"An excellent example of a fine essayist in action . . . readers will benefit from an encounter with his erudite and elegant prose. Highly recommended." "Library Journal" on "Life, Sex and Ideas""

Grayling has that wonderful gift that all good teachers have, the ability to simplify

Book Description

A new edition of the bestseller from our pre-eminent philosopher, A.C. Grayling

Format: Paperback
Grayling writes smugly, from what he clearly imagines to be a great height, downwards in the direction of what he equally clearly sees as his lowly and benighted readers. I spent an hour leafing through this yesterday and took away little more than a vague and amused impression that he was trying to patronise me. The fact that I agree with him about most things only made it worse: with friends like this, suddenly my enemies look a lot more dangerous.

Yuck.
