"Perhaps because its potential readership is scarcely larger than the potential authorship, the genre of introductory books on Schopenhauer is of uniformly high quality. The great pessimist would surely be confounded and joyful at the situation, but books whose titles contain little if anything other than the name 'Schopenhauer' are generally excellent. I am pleased to report that Robert Wicks's recent effort is no exception." (Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)
