Read in November, 2010

Was caught by the Title and a friend's review which looked like a fun-ride
and Lo! when I started reading this on a train from Prague-Budapest, it turned out to be one hell of a joy ride.

The jokes, the subtle messages peppered with a history of philosophers and (their) philosophies
turned out to be a great combination of fun and trivia.

As my friend had mentioned in her review, "read it in a plane and you run the risk of your fellow passengers amused as you laugh throught the journey" , even I cudn't conrol my laughter and a few
tight-upper lipped ones didn;t look amused at me :)

Read it even if you are phobic to philosophy, as this one would surely be turning all the stones in the philosopher's graves from Aristotle, to Freud to who-wants-to-know !
