A Brief History of Thought: A Philosophical Guide to Living - Luc Ferry This is a powerful book, or should I say Philosophy is a powerful subject?

I tend to run away from philosophy, for laziness and for fear that I could not handle all the complications, all the intricate thoughts and ideas. But once facing it, I was sucked right into it. Thoughts, oh the web of thoughts, are so formidable. Realizing that oneself is untolerably ignorant, dreadfully blind, awfully deaf; is no comfort, I could assure you. Nonetheless, I find no regret.

Above is what I feel about philosophy, not about this book. The book, though I am no expert in this field, I feel like it is a great introduction to ideas, to knowledge, to wisdom, and interestingly to good living, though I do encounter some minor issues. Beware that this is an exhausting read, despite its luring 300 page-long only.
