Will Bynoe's brilliant collection of very short philosophical essays is very readable, elegantly written and contains real wisdom. Unlike many such books, it is also funny. Bynoe effortlessly avoids the familiar traps which many such books fall into - it does not patronise the reader and it does not just summarise the ideas of others. This is a really special book - I recommend it highly. -- Tim Crane, Professor of Philosophy at Central European University
