  1. Not a bad overview of the concepts for what is a slight amorphous philosophy Fairly easy read and a good starting point before wearing a black skivvy and reading Satre in coffee lounges The illustrations give the work a lay person friendly look without adding anything.


  2. The book was inviting because of its illustrations, which aren t bad, but it s poorly edited and incredibly shallow I appreciate the general introduction to a number of existential philosophers though, and I look forward to reading the work of many of them I feel like this is a dumbed down, bootleg version of Walter Kaufmann s existentialism reader which I haven t read, but I ve glossed it and it looks substantial.


  3. An enjoyable read, especially as an introduction to further reading, but I subtracted a star because, like other reviewers, I found the substandard editing to be a distraction.


  4. This book was so disorderly that at several points I stopped and made a line by line survey of what I had read before so I could be absolutely certain that the author really was casually referring to something he had not yet mentioned I liked it, though Despite the arbitrary placement of the paragraphs, I found it easy to understand The pictures were funny It was occasionally cursory, but it was not meant to be thorough I can t speak to it s accuracy, having not read enough about this topic befo [...]


  5. The book gives a basic understanding of Existentialism and its main concepts It is also a good source for further readings to continue studying the philosophy I wish the writers and editors had been careful as the book is filled with grammatical errors and spelling errors Other than that, this is definitely a great and accesible introduction If after finishing this you are interested in a concrete and equally accessible break down of Existentialism, I highly recommend reading Existentialism Is [...]


  6. I love everything by David Cogswell This book is an awesome introduction to existentialism and the history of the philosophy Full of fun pictures and cartoons, tons of mini comic strips and enough to tell you about your favorite Existential philosophers To be fair, I really only went through DeBeauvoir, Sartre and Camus, but every section is packed with information I ADORE this book and highly suggest the Cogswell books to anybody who is interested in philosophy, but can t stand huge walls of te [...]


  7. The book is perfect for philosophy experts and beginners alike The illustrations are amazingly done and connect to the each section It s also organized incredibly well It begins with an explanation of what existentialism is spoiler It s complicated , and then begins going through existentialist philosophers, writers and artists Then it starts talking about existentialism in various fields A good read, well worth it.


  8. Even though there were plenty of editorial mistakes this is a very good introduction to existentialism The little bit of background of some of the movements main proponents helps to put their thoughts and ideas into perspective The illustrations also helped me better understand some of their main ideas Overall I enjoyed the read and learned a lot about the movement and now want to read some of their works.


  9. While this text serves as a decent introduction to existentialism, the writing is not exactly up to snuff There are numerous grammar and spelling errors scattered throughout the entirety and the book seems poorly edited At one point, the author makes mention of the day this book was written I know that can simply mean the day it was completed, but was this book written in one day It seems like it sometimes.


  10. Fun I Wanted to read some heavier existential essays and needed a quick rerun of the basics A great prerequisite to all those borderline psychobable esqu essays COUGHCamus s Sisyphus COUGH The illustrator was a clown for Barnum and Bailey, speaking of absurd Loved it.


  11. A decent introduction to the basic tenants and influential thinkers of existentialism, but the writing and editing is atrocious.


  12. I feel as if it s pointed me in the direction for further study which is what I wanted from the book It could use some serious copyediting, though.



  13. A good basic overview of existential thinkers Good introductory book for anyone looking for a brief overview of the area.
