existentialism has always been thought provoking and this book, a collection of biographies of some of the top philosophers of our time is indeed that.  The book jumps right into the middle of existentialism and the issues that many of these philosophers from the likes of Beauvoir to Hervedigger debated about are brought to the fore. What makes this book stand out is the narrative used and the fact that it goes on to underscore some little unknown facts about these famous personalities like how Sarte thought that he was being followed everywhere by Lobster like beings. This book stands out for all the right reasons and is one of the best books.
