Philosophy for Everyone - Enjoyment for None?
For starters, not spending 30 minutes (and I am not exaggerating) with an overall preview, followed by a section by section preview, followed by further previews. Never before have I found myself screaming "GET ON WITH IT!" to an audiobook.
Anything to with cycling, nothing to do with Philosophy.
I bought this after reading the publisher's summary:" interesting and varied philosophical terrain" mmm and " in a fun but critical way" not in my world. Occasionally interesting, largely very heavy going and dull.
