The Ego Trick (Granta, 2011)

 

“In this entertaining, educative and gracefully written book, Julian Baggini explores the question of the nature of the self and in what sense it persists through time. … This is one of the best, most readable and most stimulating introductions yet written about this intriguing topic. Enjoy, and profit.” AC Grayling in the FT.

Should You Judge This Book by Its Cover? 100 Fresh takes on familiar sayings and quotations (Granta, 2009)

The aim of this book is to make proverbs and other familiar sayings speak their wisdom afresh, and to clear away some of the mistaken ideas they can give rise to. This is a book to argue and converse with. It is not a reference book, manual or a self-help guide. It exists simply to fuel the thinking of those who think for themselves.
