Should You Judge This Book by its Cover?: 100 Fresh Takes on Familiar Sayings and Quotations (Paperback)

£8.99
Usually despatched in 7-10 days.

Synopsis

This is another rapid-fire selection of short, stimulating and entertaining capsules of philosophy from the master of the genre. This time Baggini applies his philosophical scalpel to famous sayings, proverbs and pieces of homespun wisdom. Should you really do as the Romans do when in Rome and practice what you preach? Is the grass always in fact greener on the other side of the fence, and is there ever smoke without fire? Is beauty always in the eye of the beholder and is it actually better to be safe than sorry? Baggini's approach is as witty and deeply thought provoking as ever.
