My first book was Sartre: A Guide for the Perplexed, a re-write of my PhD thesis.Years of research finally led to The Sartre Dictionary, an A-Z of Sartre’s ideas,works and influences. The hardest thing I've ever done, but very satisfying. Next came Sartre and Fiction, an introduction to Sartre’s stories, novels and plays. Suddenly it struck me that a short, self-help book called How to Be an Existentialist would be a great idea. I wrote it in a few months and it’s a huge hit. Time to diversify away from Sartre and existentialism. Why not draw on years of teaching philosophy to beginners? So I wrote, How to Be a Philosopher. I then went back to the theme of existentialism with the Existentialist’s Guide to Death, the Universe and Nothingness. Now, another change of direction, another area of philosophy I'm interested in: a book called The God Confusion: Why Nobody Knows the Answer to the Ultimate Question, published in September by Bloomsbury.
