"Professor Velasquez has written an introduction to philosophy which embodies the results of a lifetime devoted to philosophy. His book is mellow with a very human, personal flavor, while it also presents the reasonings and the contentions of the various schools. It not only asserts that philosophy deals with life, but it proceeds to do so. . . . The text is organized extremely well according to the traditional divisions of philosophy."
"Well-written and organized introduction to philosophy that contains a balanced treatment of the major issues and problems of the discipline. . . . Major philosophical topics are well-covered in each chapter."
"Velasquez has taken an even-handed approach to some of the most significant controversies in philosophy. . . . Velasquez has put together excellent resources for a problems approach to introducing philosophy, including both solid orientations to classic problems and questions and selected excerpts. . . . The coverage of topics in philosophy is excellent for the level of the text."
"A clear, thorough introduction to philosophy with an emphasis on the development of contemporary philosophical issues. . . . Velasquez is able to (1) clearly explain and (2) motivate all sides of a philosophical issue."
"Comprehensive, interactive, topically driven."

Formatting causes hiccups in kindle narrator, reading reviews or footnotes prior to main text. This is not the author or books fault though.
I bought a used copy of this book and it was in a usable condition. Everything was intact with minor wear and tear. It has something that looks like water damage towards the end of the book but it doesn't interfere with its legibility.
