The quality of the reviews already received bears witness to the civilizing influence of this timely book. At first I thought that it would be the sort of worthy, well-intentioned Child's Introduction to Philosophy that one lobs half-heartedly in the direction of a preternaturally 'Gifted Child', and washes one's own hands of pronto with relief. But I found it wholly gripping, and so do my pupils. This does for philosophy what Terry Deary has done for history. Any reader with a more-or-less still functioning brain and the ability to grapple with 'the nature of reality' or 'the meaning of life' will love it. Highly recommended!
