Customer Review

on 6 June 2000
I liked this book. A lot. Why? Because it feels good, that's why. I don't care what it is supposed to be, an introduction to philosophy, a self-help book, whatever, I just care about what it is. Well written and comfortably engaging. I'm glad for it, mainly because it uses philosophy to "console" instead of to twist and confound. A friend of mine studied philosophy intently, he read and oftentimes re-read the weighty volumes in an attempt to develop a personal motif. I asked him once a spurious and naive question about what he'd read. He said, "I've come to the conclusion that I'd rather sit in the Nellie and have a pint with me mates". I quite liked that, much for the same reason I liked this book. It's one of lifes pleasant-pills, a short-term fix, and isn't that what life is made up of? Short-term fixes, like stepping stones to the grave.
