A friend saw Bowen speak at Keplers and loved him. I got the book and am almost halfway through it. I love it. The reviewer is right that its laugh out loud funny and I have learned quite a bit along the way. This all completely overturns the annoyance I felt by philosophy when I took it in college. A friend who's reading the book and I have already had quite a few discussions about ideas from this book. Every now and then, Bowen startles you with an idea that you don't like and you have to pause for a moment. But most often, he jolts you with an idea that you love and have never thought and then makes you laugh. Great review.

Explaining a pun to someone is demeaning.

Having a pun or aphorism explained that you don't understand or know the meaning of, on the other hand, can be quite fun and eye-opening if done in the right way.
