I am a non-tradional college senior with a 3.9 cgpa! Thanks to this book, I actually understood the ideas and concepts after trying to read them over and over! It helped me to consult the dictionary FIRST then go to the textbook. Now one knows what to look for.It is also wonderful just to gain knowledge from--says my neighbor. I highly recommend it to anyone trying to understand philosophy OR philosophers!
