This innocuously titled book series is actually a very humorous introduction to Greek philosophy by Italian author Luciano de Crescenzo. It combines personal anecdotes and cultural observations with more abstract, philosophical content interspersed throughout. This personal touch is likely to make it more interesting for younger readers. For his work in popularizing Greek philosophy, the author received honorary citizenship of Athens in 1994.
