Is there an ultimate meaning to human existence? Julian Baggini argues in What's It All About that meaning can be found in a variety of ways. He succinctly breaks down six answers people commonly suggest when considering what life is all about. By reducing the mysterious question of "meaning" to a series of more specific questions about what gives life purpose and value, he shows that the quest for meaning can be personal, empowering, and upliftingand
within everyone's reach.

Wall Street Journal Useful and provocative.

Peter Singer, author of How Are We To Live Looking for a clear guide to what contemporary philosophy has to say about the meaning of life? Baggini takes us through all the plausible answers, weaving together Kierkegaard, John Stuart Mill, Monty Python, and Funkadelic in an entertaining but always carefully reasoned discussion.

New Statesman A work of popular philosophy that is simple, serious and devoid of ostentation. The question of the meaning of life has long been a byword for pretentious rambling. It takes some nerve to tackle it in a brisk and no-nonsense fashion.

New Humanist Informative, thought-provoking, and entertaining in the process. The book takes a refreshingly personal approach and offers an encounter with a vigorous mind at work, puzzling through the issues in a trenchantly argued but subtly reasoned way.

Scotland on Sunday It's egalitarianism of style and content is admirable. There is nothing here to put off someone who has never read a book of philosophy, yet the book is doing philosophy, not just talking about it.
