I usually strive to read book in order to improve my both reading and writing skill, but sometimes finding a book which is close to academic level can be difficult. Nevertheless, this book is appropriate for people who want to develop their english skills. That is because, unlike some books which are very detailed, Philosophy 101 is both brief and explanatory. Therefore, without getting bored, you can read this book with ease.
Furthermore, it begins with pre-socratic era, and continue with some scholars such as Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Russell, Sartre, Nietzsche and so on. Even though this book mention about these people' lives, also author clarify some complicated theories which are related to philosophy.
However, I found this book in bibliopole because we can not purchase this book on Internet. Besides this, there are a lot of books that are related distinct subjects like World History, Mythology, and Religion. Of course they was published in the same publishing house as a crash course, but we can only buy through Amazon at a high cost. In brief, when you come across with these type of books, never miss them.
