"Grayling writes in praise of the essay, and his book is an excellent example of a fine essayist in action....Grayling often 'tells' us rather than deploying sustained arguments for his controversial views, but readers will benefit from an encounter with his erudite and elegant prose. Highly recommended."--Library Journal
