Suzanne Harrington, Irish Examiner (Cork) Review from previous edition The book's a little gem.
The Guardian. Light hearted but never flippant.
The Guardian (Review) Wonders never cease. This is popular philosophy by an amateur in the best sense of the word, a man who clearly loves the stuff and writes plain English...[Eagleton] makes his case well and with a light touch.
John Gray, The Independent It is a stimulating and often entertaining, if at times rather breathless, Cook's tour around the chief monuments of western philosophy and literature...The Meaning of Life is unusual and refreshing.
Simon Jenkins, Guardian Book of the Week [Eagleton] makes his case well and with a light touch... I stand convinced.
John Cornwell, Sunday Times A lively starting point for late-night debate.
Mario Pisani, The Financial Times Warm intellectual pleasure...meticulous treatment of the subject...It looks like Eagleton got it right.
Gordon Parsons, Morning Star The name Terry Eagleton...assures us of stimulation, style, sparkling, sometimes acerbic, wit, and wide-ranging erudition. In other words he is eminently readable...[a] commendably pocket-sized book.
Marina Warner With sparkling effrontery, panache, and deft footwork, Eagleton moves from ironic flippancy and caustic demolition to resolute affirmation.
