    "This is a great autobiography and written well. It's not a Japanese book."

    "A much older book then you are probably used to, but really cool read if you are an avid reader. Even if you do not know who Jean-Jacques Rousseau is, you can still really get into this book. Autobiographies are a little different then normal books, as you get a direct source of the writers mind, recommend!"

    "Rousseau's "Confessions" is often considered a must-read. If you don't read it in high school, you probably will in college, if you're at all interested in philosophy or even classic literature. Rousseau's story is interesting and inspiring, and I recommend it for anyone who hasn't read it yet."

    "An eye opening journey through the thoughts of man and it's consequences. While you may not particularly like the focus of the book the message is what is important here, if you can stand the messenger. "

    "This book is just what you need if you are into learning about the life of this great timeless thinker. I've read it twice, and learned a lot about Rousseau! Love citing a few of his quotes when chatting with my friends! lol"

    "While I was actually reading this book, I blogged quite a bit about the reading experience. Rousseau is hands-down the most irritating narrator that I have read since A la Recherche du Temps Perdu. Rousseau is so self-absorbed that he moves past pathetic into loathesome and back again. He starts his career as an exhibitionist, moves into petty theft, buys an 11 year old girl for unpleasant purposes, forces his mistress to abandon their children at a foundling's home, alienates everyone who tries to help him, and generally seems lost in paranoia and self-aggrandizement.
