Reviews

"How many of the classic problems of philosophy can you solve on the commuting train? More than you might think, if Andrew Pessin's neat and provocative new book is anything to go by. The perfect start to thinking more deeply about life, the universe, and everything." - Timothy Chappell, Professor of Philosophy, The Open University "A pot pourri of philosophical ideas! Written with a deft hand and a light touch." -
