This is the perfect companion guide for any Philosophy a-level course. This would be the book I’d recommend to students right at the beginning of the course as it would provide a strong foundation of information that the specification could be built on. The beauty of this book is that it’s not deisgned around exam specifications, which means it’s not missing information that students would need to understand but the exam board assumes students will know. The introduction is accurate; this book puts the enjoyment into philosophy. It covers all the bases and keeps its language simple and clear.

Degree in a Book: Philosophy is a well-developed book that was a pleasure to read. As a college instructor who teaches many courses, and among them, the philosophy of ethics and morals as well as psychology, I found Degree in a Book: Philosophy well-written and easy to follow. Kudos to the author, Peter Gibson, for the prose and easy to follow manor of this subject matter, which is not easy to do considering the topic. I received an advanced review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley for my honest review. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
