A good and clear introduction to most areas of philosophy - it excludes noticeably aesthetics - and in numerous sub-fields many major topics are not included: personal identity, universals, and just war theory, to name a few. But, what it does cover, it covers well, often going into analyses and critical discussions for several pages. The topic of free will is left to a discussion at the end since, as he says, it cut across many other sub-fields (philosophy of mind, of science, of knowledge, of metaphysics, and of ethics). The chapter on political philosophy is somewhat narrow covering only Hobbes, and Rawls & Nozick. There is no glossary although terms are written in bold in the text, and the bibliography and notes are very few, and further reading suggestions are rather poor.
