I've had the paperback version for many years and I just bought a copy for my Nook. This is a well written overview of the history of philosophical ideas in surprising depth and clarity for its breadth. The author does a stellar job! From there its easy to launch into other books when a particular branch really grabs you. I continually reference it especially when I want to quickly brush up on something I haven't thought about in awhile. Its a great choice for the beginner and the well versed. The paperback/hardback has nice color pictures. The ebook has black and white pictures that are still good and I'm glad they were not cut out of the digital edition as they have relevant information. I continuously use this book and I think its a great choice.
