Why should you take time to study Philosophy in 2014? Perhaps to become familiar with Voltaire and his timeless wisdom. "If we believe absurdities, we will commit atrocities" ~~Voltaire. Donald Rumsfeld, anyone? ;-)
I wish I had read this book for a college course, because I would have loved to have been able to spend hours discussing it with other people. Even without all of that, I found it to be fascinating in explaing details about the lives of the philosophers and the details of the differences between their ideas. This is the kind of book you can read over and over again and keep learning more from it.
I'll leave more nuanced reviews to philosophy experts, but if you want to survey philosophy over time in one digestible book, I can't imagine you could do any better than this one.
