Summary

As Douglas Adams points out, if there is no final answer to the question "what is the meaning of life?" 42 is as good or bad an answer as any other. Indeed, 42 quotes might be even better! Gary Cox guides us through 42 of the most misunderstood, misquoted, provocative, and significant quotes in the history of philosophy, providing witty and compelling commentary along the way.

Great overview

Really well put together overview of thoughts and their thinkers. I enjoyed the personal back story to each quote. I'm Now inspired to go out and read in further detail the philosophers that chimed with me! Recommended.

Best philosophy intro ever

What more can I say. It’s the easiest, wittiest and most fun philosophy intro audiobook I’ve listened to. I have bought many philosophy audiobooks and courses but this was the most illuminating of them all because now I have a map to reading the philosophers introduced here.
