The book has well thought out aims: chapters are short (mostly 10-15 pages) and focused; they contain useful study questions; they have up-to-date, comprehensive bibliographies; they are written as dialogues, which give students models of (analytic) philosophy in action; the dialogues also avoid closing issues, encouraging students to continue them.
