I took an introductory philosophy course and it required this book. I agree with most of the other helpful reviews that this book is a good introduction to philosophy. This is not to say that the opinions of the authors does not come through to the reader. Throughout the chapter, the authors present and challenge view after view before concluding with their own understanding of the topic. It did seem that they wanted to convince you of their side by presenting it in this way.

I enjoyed reading the book regardless, and it wasn't because I wholly agreed with them. I thought it was a fast and easy read, and it took me step by step on how they came to their conclusions.

A great way to "Do" philosophy!
I picked up this older version for nearly free and I just started reading from the beginning.
The examples from movies like "The Matrix," and other thought experiments make the reading fun and relate to our times.

Not the easiest read. Plain wordy text that is very boring, has no pictures. Thank god it's an older edition.
