Recensioner i media

"The book is certainly a remarkable tour de force, combining amusement and instruction. It can be read from cover to cover, or can dip into it when a beery occasion arises. However, even teetotalers can peruse it with pleasure and profit." (Metapsychology, 15 November 2011) "Recommended for fraternity brothers who missed Philosophy 101 or nonteetotaling philosophy majors seeking to broaden their beer horizons. For a more serious yet similarly accessible intro to philosophy, readers will want to consider the excellent (and free) courses on iTunes U from Oxford, Yale, and Berkeley". (, 15 May 2011) "But, if you're already open minded you should have just as much fun without the beer! But if you enjoy both prepare for an exploration of life's toughest questions and some of its tastiest brews. If anything, it's wonderful to know that with barely any effort you can have a real (read: non-superficial) conversation with almost anyone by reading one of these puzzles aloud." (The Beer Connoisseur, 2011) "This fun paperback considers the Big Questions that have troubled college sophomores since Aristotle had his tenure." (, 15 April 2011)
