Not only is this an excellent introduction to philosophy, it is also a good read. The tallented Stephen Law has made me realise that philosophy is an every day necessity, we do it all the time. As a life-long reader of SF and fantasy, I have been wrestling with philosophical questions all my life: what is it to be human, what is God, how do we know right from wrong?
There may be more complete or in depth books on the subject (lots of them) but I feel more prepared to tackle them thanks to Mr Laws and his illustrator Daniel Postgate whose cartoons illustrate the text perfectly. I think I am now able to read Sophie's World with confidence!
To whom would I recommend this book? Anyone who lives in a world with other people! It is aimed at teenagers, I guess, but would form a good springboard for discussion with younger children too. Teachers will love it, parents need it and the rest of us can just enjoy it.

If I were a teenager I would absolutely hate this book. As a grannie I appreciate the examples and easy introduction to reasoning, which grannies everywhere can use to boost their own sagacity ratings.

Very good book enjoyed by my 11 year old. It answers questions she has been asking for a while and gives her different perspectives. Each questions are short enough that you can read them any time and think about it. It is logical, thorough and impartial as it should be and let the reader makes its own mind which is what she was after.

This is a great book and fun to read. Whilst it is really easy to read and has good examples it does still make you think. A good introduction to philosophy and reasoning.
