An easy, breezy tour through philosophers telling us how and why to live. From the ancient Greeks to philosophers still taking in breath, this is a lighthearted yet earnest exploration of their different takes on life. There are hedonists and those concerned with living the best life morally, and pessimists and those willing to point out that it's all pointless. One was so bad that I groaned aloud, but then Klein saved me by pointing out that no one sure whether that guy was joking or not.
No too heavy, but not without substance, this is a great little primer on the wherefore of living.
