There are other problems with the work as a whole. The small biographical sketches appended are truly too small to really give a fair idea of the life of the philosopher involved.
If one is looking for quick understandings of the work of great philosophers I believe one is essentially contradicting what the philosophical enterprise is all about.
I highly recommend this book as a portal into philosophy. It's fascinating, simple, and while not completely expansive it is also very nonthreatening. My only complaint is that there are quite a few philosophers which had to be omitted: Though really, that's just another way of saying please make a volume 2.
