Tell Me "Why?"

Why We FightWhy We Need LoveWhy Our Decisions Don't Matter

Edited by Simon Van Booy, author of Love Begins in Winter, the three volumes entitled Why We Fight, Why We Need Love, and Why Our Decisions Don't Matter offer gems of insight from across time on these subjects from the likes of William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, W. B. Yeats, Vincent Van Gogh, Ludwig Wittgenstein, James Joyce, Anaïs Nin, Marc Chagall, Jack Kerouac, Emily Brontë, and Friedrich Nietzsche, along with deft commentary that help unlock the mysteries that have long confounded humanity.

Provocative and eye-opening, these books introduce students to age-old themes through memorable passages and rarely seen extracts that stimulate intellectual energies and grant a greater understanding of why we fight, why we need love, and why our decisions don’t matter.

If you would like to consider these books for one of your classes, please order an examination copy. If you've already decided to require these books, please request a desk copy.
