I admit that sometimes I'm willing to start with the elementary textbook, if I really want to learn something. The cool thing about the "...for Beginners" series is that the comic-book style never made me feel dumb, and the books within it are usually funny, too. Hey, chalk it up to the graphic-novel craze, and run out and buy a few. They have "Freud for Beginners," and "Judaism for Beginners" and "Sex for Beginners." (But you'll probably want to pick up the latter just before Books-a-Million closes for the evening. And don't look the cashier in the eye.) However, as soon as someone starts trying to simplify philosophy, that person will inevitably run into more (not fewer) arguments.
