A guide to philosophy through different ages, starting with the ancient world and ending with contemporary philosophy. Very simple, with illustrations and nice figures. Great book!
I've read this twice now, and I bumped it up a star. It's got more depth than you expect, and an additional decade of perspective made me appreciate it more. It's a great look back at the early 90s and what it meant to be young and ambitious and aimless back then. The self-consciousness that turns off many readers (self-absorption may be more accurate) is actually a pretty good reflection of how many of us feel at that age, and what many people feel like after tragedy. Don't get hung up on the literary devices (there are many) and enjoy the Kerouac-esque style of the San Francisco chapters, which are particularly great. People really want to hate Eggers for his success, but he's earned it.
