Drawing his inspiration from 42 of the funniest, wisest, and quirkiest quotations on the big questions in life, Vernon offers a light-hearted look at what philosophy has to say about life, the Universe, and everything. Deftly interweaving the thoughts of the greatest minds of all time, from Socrates to Monty Python, Vernon provides a platter of witty yet profound discussions on work, love, eternal life, sex, and happiness. From the allure of cats to the nature of wisdom, this rip-roaring read is the perfect companion for the armchair philosopher, and proves that even a little introspection can transform our lives for the better!

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Easy to read, but Vernon is serious and challenging too, in his look at such questions as is ignorance bliss and is love blind?" Sue Baker

* Publishing News *

"A joy to read, yielding both wisdom and delight in perfectly sized portions. A trip to the supermarket will never be the same again."

* Professor Richard Schoch - Queen Mary, University of London and author of The Secrets of Happines *

"In today's dumbed-down culture, it sometimes feels as though ideas are too readily reduced to sound-bites and aphorisms. How refreshing that Vernon turns this trend on its head and uses well known aphorisms to allow readers to think more deeply about life, love, the universe and everything."

* Claire Fox - Director, Institute of Ideas and panelist on BBC Radio 4's The Moral Maze *
