Cressida Cowell is easily the best children's author out there. David Tennant might be one of the best human beings out there. Really enjoyed the story with the kids, thoroughly enjoyed the performance. The kids were silent in the car for hours!

Thought Provoking...

A really interesting exploration of Humanism as a religion which I have not found in other works. Definately worth a credit!

Ethics in the Real World cover art

Some interesting ideas. Needs more depth.

Singer's talent for finding the ethical in everything shows through but his inherent utilitarian view grates at times. A nod to some other views would help but this is simply a collection of opinion columns.

A great selection from a personal perspective. A great introduction to British feminist thought. Really well and passionately read by the author.

Overall, an interesting listen but some of the illustrations are weird and examples are a combination of rushed and niche! Enjoyed it all the same.

A decent overview of bigger issue.

Personally fascinated by the deist / scholastic divide in religious thought, which is what this really boils down to. Not a fan of Lynn Redgrave though. Sorry Lynn.

An enjoyable biography.

Typical Strathern; a highly enjoyable run through the life of Wittgenstein without getting too involved in his philosophy! Madness and egocentrism are the order of the day!

An interesting introduction.

Well narrated and moves on quickly. Would be nice to have a bit more details on his thought and a bit less biography but does what it says on the tin... Philosophy in an hour (and a half...)

This assumes a very high Christian protestant approach, but even if you don't share the Christology there are some interesting ideas. Worth a scan, but more of an instruction manual for a particular type of Christianity than a theological overview!

A really enjoyable introduction to ideas in Eastern thought, a huge amount of which I'd never heard of! Baffling amounts of names in unfamiliar syllables but an inspiration to read further.
