Good Reference and Resource
Solid book, stuffed full of philosophers and ideas from some of the earliest recorded philosophy to present day. Not so great as a book to be read like a novel, but an invaluable resource and reference book. I greatly appreciate that it also includes Eastern philosophers, not just Western as is so often the case.
I have read the science me, so I can't wait to read this one.
