Description

If life is meaningless as Sartre suggests, what is the point of being born? What does Freud have to say about losing one's virginity or Nietzsche about having a mid-life crisis? Drawing on philosophy, art, literature and psychology, this book explores the real meaning of the hoops we all have to jump through.

Reviews

"'I am often asked to recommend a good introduction to philosophy - now I've discovered one... Smith's work is witty, inventive and intelligent' - THES 'I'll never drive the same way again. Or have a midlife crisis the same way again, for that matter. This book is elegant proof that philosophy doesn't have to be fusty and musty.' - A.J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically 'Take a seat and become thoroughly absorbed in this fascinating journey. Great stuff.' - Frank Furedi '...fascinating and deeply impressive book.' - Daily Mail"
