People pushed their way towards the door and out on to a tiny, dark platform. Harry shivered in the cold night air.

Philosophers Their Lives and Works (Book): From Confucius and Plato to Karl Marx and Noam Chomsky, this book brings together more than illustrated biographies of the world's great philosophers.

The book is a collection of essays by a number of academic philosophers. In the first part, are essays that describe how their authors got to be atheists or how they live their lives. In this part of the book, I found a number of the essays were uplifting.4/5.
