This is a fantastically entertaining and efficient way to explore the many philosophers of the past. Simon is a witty writer, making these timeless figures both more accessible and a pleasure to read. You'll find it hard to put this book down for very long. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in philosophy or dead people.
