    " Uneven (hey, it's a compilation of essays) but ultimately interesting breakdown of "Mad Men" in terms of philosophical ideas. If you're a "Mad Men" fan, leaf through the book and you're bound to find something worthwhile. "

    " A nice side-read for higher-functioning Mad Men fans. I'd be interested to hear the opinion of Mad Men fans with a philosophy background. Some essays are easier to relate to than others, and the book is a bit outdated at this point (only references the first three seasons). "

    " I had high hopes for this book and was sincerely disappointed. "

    " Interesting analysis of the tv show Mad Men. The various writers make some good points and really make you think about the interrelationships of the characters, character faults and strengths, and the many things that go unsaid. Great companion reading for fans of the show. "
