I suspect I might have gotten more out of this book if I had been an avid Halo player instead of the mother of one. I was, however, able to navigate this book pretty well, and it asked some interesting questions, especially about the nature of identity and of reality itself. I'm glad I read it, and I will give it to my son to read too.

A pretty good book, some articles were not so great, others were quite well written. Good discussion of philosophy, lots of research. Favourite article was the one on camping. Will teach you basic and a little bit more in depth philosophy.
