Author's mundane vague thoughts on various topics
on 25 January 2016
I bought this after being impressed by the contents page and good reviews. I thought there would be an objective discussion about the different topics- what philosophers have said and how these thoughts have affected the way we live. No - just the author's vague ponderings. He assumes that the readers agree with lots of his thoughts. Really annoying and weird. The last chapter was bizarrely about Bertrand Russell's book 'History of Western Philosophy' - almost as if it was an apology for this book and a recommendation for a better book. Terrible. Even the section on 'People' which seems hard to go wrong with was written in a very dull manner. First time I've read this author - doubt I'll read him again.
