Reviews

"A wonderfully concise appeal for presentness...Elegantly stated." --The Boston Globe

"Missing Out is [Adam Phillips's] most poetic, paradoxical, repetitive, and punning yet; he doesn't argue in a linear fashion but nestles ideas within ideas, like Russian dolls." --Sheila Heti, The New York Times Book Review

"[Adam Phillips] has an elegant prose style...with a talent for turning a phrase, a knack for epigrams" --Los Angeles Review of Books

"Extraordinary...Always humane, never reductive, Phillips is one of those writers whom it is a pleasure simply to hear think." --The Sunday Telegraph (London)
