Reviews

  • There are people you’ve never met and yet you miss them when they are gone… Eco’s famously ironic voice is penetrating … The issues Eco addresses are so enormous in their scale they seem insurmountable, yet his measured, erudite commentary assures you that they can be understood and therefore resolved

    Financial Times
  • He brilliantly exposes all that is absurd and paradoxical in contemporary behaviour. Eco’s irony is disarming, his cleverness dazzling

    Tim Parks, Guardian
  • A swan song from one of Europe's great intellectuals...Eco entertains with his intellect, humor, and insatiable curiosity...there's much here to enjoy and ponder

    Kirkus Reviews
  • Eco has left us an intelligent, intriguing, and often hilariously incisive set of observations on contemporary follies and changing mores.

    Publisher's Weekly
  • Illuminating, entertaining and humane.

    Emily Beament, UK Press Syndication
