Light hearted but never flippant. * The Guardian. *
Wonders never cease. This is popular philosophy by an amateur in the best sense of the word, a man who clearly loves the stuff and writes plain English...[Eagleton] makes his case well and with a light touch. * The Guardian (Review) *
It is a stimulating and often entertaining, if at times rather breathless, Cook's tour around the chief monuments of western philosophy and literature...The Meaning of Life is unusual and refreshing. * John Gray, The Independent *
[Eagleton] makes his case well and with a light touch... I stand convinced. * Simon Jenkins, Guardian Book of the Week *
A lively starting point for late-night debate. * John Cornwell, Sunday Times *
Warm intellectual pleasure...meticulous treatment of the subject...It looks like Eagleton got it right. * Mario Pisani, The Financial Times *
The name Terry Eagleton...assures us of stimulation, style, sparkling, sometimes acerbic, wit, and wide-ranging erudition. In other words he is eminently readable...[a] commendably pocket-sized book. * Gordon Parsons, Morning Star *
With sparkling effrontery, panache, and deft footwork, Eagleton moves from ironic flippancy and caustic demolition to resolute affirmation. * Marina Warner *
