Review

"A wonderfully concise appeal for presentness...Elegantly stated."--"The Boston Globe
"""Missing Out" is [Adam Phillips's] most poetic, paradoxical, repetitive, and punning yet; he doesn't argue in a linear fashion but nestles ideas within ideas, like Russian dolls."--Sheila Heti, "The New York Times Book Review"

"[Adam Phillips] has an elegant prose style...with a talent for turning a phrase, a knack for epigrams--"Los Angeles Review of Books"

"Extraordinary...Always humane, never reductive, Phillips is one of those writers whom it is a pleasure simply to hear think."--"The Sunday Telegraph" (London)
