Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Millions of Americans have come to rely on the Complete Idiot's Guide series for practical, basic information on everything from preparing an income tax return to entertaining weekend guests. The witty, conversational style and the inviting, browsable format take the intimidation factor out of learning new skills. This season the popular series — which has featured such top sellers as The Complete Idiot's Guide to Dating and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Making Money on Wall Street — has been expanded to include 27 new tides. As always, each book includes:
-- Idiot-proof steps for mastering specific skills
-- An easy-to-use design, including fun sidebars and witty cartoons
-- Warnings, tips, definitions, and advice from leading authorities
-- The popular "Least You Need To Know" feature at the back of each chapter

The only book that explains philosophy so anyone can understand it

The book that answers the question: "Why ask why?" For the first time ever, a work that unravels the most difficult concepts of thought and logic for the layperson, from the Socratic method to Descartes' "I think, therefore I am" to Kierkegaard's existentialism to Freud's "id". This unique book also addresses contemporary topics, such as pop philosophy, the validity of ancient philosophies today, how an individual can mold his or her own philosophy — and how to use philosophical principles in everyday life.
