"The book has well thought out aims: chapters are short (mostly 10-15 pages) and focused; they contain useful study questions; they have up-to-date, comprehensive bibliographies; they are written as dialogues, which give students models of (analytic) philosophy in action; the dialogues also avoid closing issues, encouraging students to continue them." Nick Huggett, University of Illinois at Chicago."

I think this book will be somewhat difficult for the introductory reader, but I suppose that comes with the territory. Metaphysics is just hard! The dialogue format does little to alleviate this; in fact, the dialogues are often stilted and sometimes distracting. However, the advantage of this format is that it allows the authors to discuss the various sides of each issue without telling the reader which side to accept. There is a lot of metaphysics in this book, explained clearly and directly. Read it through or keep it on hand as a reference. Either way, I think a careful study of it (especially Part I) will pay off.
