God may be dead, but getting through finals will take a miracle Starter for Ten meets Essays in Love in a funny, thought-provoking philosophical novel about the power - and the dangers - of confidence The nineteenth-century philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche said that whatever does not kill us makes us stronger. Nietzsche was obviously never forced to down an entire jar of stilton by a six-foot, fifteen-stone rugby player... Ellie Taber's final year at university is hurtling to a close at alarming speed. Defeated by her philosophy dissertation and uncertain as to why she can't quite commit to her faultlessly supportive boyfriend, she is disenchanted with university life. Charlie, on the other hand, is determined to use his final year to become the man he was always meant to be. He plans to play the field, do just enough work to secure his degree, finally develop his brilliant business idea and basically have an awesome time. They are both in for a surprise.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A highly original interplay of narrative and philosophy, fiction and non-fiction, Confidence made me laugh out loud, then sink my head in the pillow realising what the meaning of life really is. If a book could be called ambidextrous, Confidence would be it * Robert Rowland Smith, author of Breakfast with Socrates *
Confidence reminds us just how practical the search for wisdom is, and how relevant to everyday life the thoughts of a philosopher with an imposing moustache and difficult-to-pronounce surname can be * Brennan Jacoby, School of Life *
Terrific - clever, funny and original. Very cool * Rosie Boycott *
