A collection of essays rather than a single sustained argument, but nevertheless a fantastic statement of his mature philosophy. As usual for the man, the writing is a treat.

Having read all Simon's book, I expected no less. Possibly the most accute and eloquent philosopher of our time! S. Wenstop

Stick with Blackburn's Think, and his Dictionary of Philosophy. This one collects some of his professional publications. As with most philosophy publications, nothing is really said, If you mean X by Y, then I respond with Z, but no one sticks to a single thesis, or one that matters. Hedging throughout. Nothing ventured.
