    "The Wittgenstein's Vienna is one of the best Wittgenstein Philosophy reference books. he authors succeed in their objective of revealing him to be a product of a philosophical and cultural dialogue (including literature, journalism, art, architecture and music) in Vienna that defined the basic problems he sought to solve before his move to Cambridge and his engagement with the Anglo-Saxon analytical philosophers with whom he is most commonly associated."

    "I found this book interesting about Wittgenstein, however it was not really a philosophy reference book. The story focused more on the man and his brand of philosophy. It was well written and interesting overall. "

    "This is a very good read considering it aggregates many of philosophers thoughts. This book isnt for everyone and if you are to truly enjoy it, you must thoroughly enjoy philosophy, otherwise I could see this book coming off as dull and meandering."
