    " this is part of a series of books i collected in order to better understand my more perplexing male friends. wilson is an autodidact, so i relish what he proclaims. for the life of me, however, I can't remember any of it... and the outsider is yet another book i have not finished. besides, i am presently past wishing to understand the motives of the more aggravating male friends, who fit the mold. i did find it interesting that wilson follows his theories to its most extreme logical conclusion, the personality profiles of serial killers... which don't interest me at all; i prefer all the grey areas of human conditionings, in light of the extremes... "

    " The most important philosophical book in my life bar none. Not sure how I can endorse this more fully. "

    " A pretty good analysis/overview of historical people suffering from existential issues. Wilson takes issues from several different people's lives and writing and puts it all together to classify those type of people who crop up in history every once in awhile who just don't fit in. It got a little dry in places, but I particularly liked the sections on Dostoevsky. If you're not already familiar with existentialist thought or writers/thinkers like Dostoevsky, Sartre, Hemmingway, Blake, Camus, etc., then this (text)book probably isn't for you. "

    " This book is great if you have read most of the books that the author discusses. However, if you have not, it is still a good study of the outsider in literature and why such a character has come to exist. "
