`A refreshingly spontaneous plunge into deep thought.' * Booklist * `A delightful book that is easily applicable to any stage of life. Even when explaining the underlying theories behind a quote, the author's writing is understandable for readers who have no prior philosophy background. Yet, philosophy students will also enjoy seeing the discipline applied to everyday life.' * Library Journal * 'Klein offers new views on some of the most famous philosophical pronouncements published, with plenty of Pithies for everyone'. * Press Association * `Wise, witty and entertaining. With his latest book Daniel Klein has given a fascinating spin to the ideas of the great philosophers and made them relevant - even necessary - for the dilemmas and possibilities of everyday living today.' -- Roman Krznaric, author of Empathy and The Wonderbox `Daniel Klein's relaxed and humorous style is deceptive. You will enjoy his wit and then realise that you have been treated to his wisdom. It is a superb introduction to philosophy, showing how its problems are not only intriguing and challenging but also of the utmost relevance to our lives.' -- Raymond Tallis, author of The Kingdom of Infinite Space
