it was ok

Not philosophy. Not exactly history. Certainly not history of ideas in an detailed way. More like....biography meets 200 year-old journalism.

I liked it mostly because it showed (a) how damn nutty these philosophers were, and (b) how petty they were, and (c) how they ain't no different than the rest of us apes.

Joy Sounds a lot like Flush, a biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's dog. By Virginia Woolf.
