"The best introduction to philosophy available" - by Matt S (New York)
Since I began studying philosophy many years ago I have been asked on multiple occasions by friends and family to recommend an introduction to the subject. Until this book was published I had difficulty choosing, but for me this is by far the best.

Before this book was available I would probably have chosen one of two old favourites - Nagel's 'What Does it All Mean?' or Russell's 'Problems of Philosophy' - which are both classic introductions but a little bit stale. Or perhaps I would have gone for Blackburn's 'Think', which is much fresher in tone but still very solid in content. However none of those books stands up to Craig's introduction for the following reasons.

First of all, you can be in no doubt as to the calibre of your guide. Craig hasn't published widely and is not a glamour figure in philosophical circles, but when he does write it ... full review

"easy to understand" - by Amazon Customer
If you wish to delve into the world of ancient Greek philosophy then this is the book for you. Well written, easy to understand, entertaining and highly practical. The chapter on the Stoics is worth the price of the book alone.

"Russells History of Western Philosophy" - by M. Turner (Whitstable, Kent United Kingdom)
This has to be one of the few books that is not pretentious about philosophy. He uses plain English and avoids multi-clause complex sentences that leave the reader wondering what the meaning is. You know where he is coming from but nevertheless he leaves the reader to make their own mind up. Very readable. I expected to dip into it but ended up reading the book cover to cover. If only all philosophy writers wrote like this the subject would be more approachable to a wider audience.

"Erudition, Education and Entertainment" - by P. Spencer (Widnes, UK)
I slammed another of ADB's books that I bought at the same time as this, so now having read this one I thought it only fair to praise it. My title pretty much sums it up - an entertaining and educational book on a number of famous philosophers from the past. Not dry and weighty, but challenging none the less. A good introduction to get you interested in things/writers you may not have thought about before. Just what I wanted and I hope you enjoy it too!

"Language is key" - by Andy Leppard (Doncaster, UK)
I read Ayer's obituary in the Telegraph and he seemed like an interesting man, so I bought this book.

As a teenage layperson, I found it VERY heavy-going, I kept a dictionary nearby to refer to and my copy is littered with notes to myself on word meanings. It was worth the perseverance to discover so much. His debunking of inexact, ambiguous metaphysics really helped me to make the switch from being a wooley agnostic to a fully confirmed atheist.

Say what you like about positive optimism, it's Ayer's use and insistance of the importance of accuracy of meaning and expression in communication that I responded to.

This book modified my outlook on life and I have given away and bought the book 4 times now.
