"The book is very well done, with an attractive combination of breadth and depth. Too often, introductory textbooks are comprehensive at the cost of serious attention to important specifics. This book helps the introductory student get down to the careful work of doing philosophy." David Sosa, University of Texas at Austin
"Reading Philosophy is useful and rewarding, and a natural for the philosophy shelves of any academic or academic's collection." Reference Reviews, 2003
