The Amazon Book Review
Author interviews, book reviews, editors picks, and more. Read it now
An elegance of style, a sense of
humour, and the ability to juxtapose
serious musings with wise and wacky
facts . . . and you have an easily
digestible form of philosophy
You could do far worse than spend an
evening or three in the company of
this book. Like good conversation,
it engages you in a flow of topics
without ever pausing long enough
