The Story of Philosophy is a great resource for someone looking for a good foundation in Western Philosophy. Although it would be nice to have had a bit more exploration of the ancient Greek and Roman Philosophers and less emphasis at the end of the book on 20th Century Europeans and Americans, this is a great book presented in an enjoyable way. The biographical information provided for each philosopher is historically interesting and creates a useful context for the philosophies developed by each of the men discussed. For anyone interested in beginning a study in philosophy, this is the place to start.
