    "not all that introductory, but interesting"
    Any additional comments?

    It was a really interesting introduction to particular works and philosophers, but discussed the works as if you already had some familiarity with them. I never read The Republic, and I feel I probably would have gotten more out of this book if I had even a passing familiarity with it. There isn't much summary of the philosophers or their writing. You're expected to pick it up through the discussion. But that is possible. It was clearly written and enjoyable. Narration is well done and engaging.
