I don't know much about philosophy but I could tell that Mary Litch, who wrote this book, knew exactly what she was talking about. Great summary analysis of various movies and concerts, good for intro students like me.
However, if you are looking for a very in depth analysis of certain concepts, you may not find them here.

An interesting way to study philosophy and definitely easier to understand. I regret giving this book away even though the class that I used it for ended.

I bought this book for my philosophy class at college. I had neither interest nor knowledge about philosophy prior to this class. But the book made it easy for me to enter philosophical world, it was not that boring as I thought. Overall a good book for beginner of philosophy, very throughly explained and informative.
