"An excellent collection of thought-provoking essays and short pieces. Just Think about It! (2nd edn) covers an amazingly wide range of topics that really made me think and reconsider my life, my choices, and our business-as-usual world. So much of what we are bombarded with on social media and mass media, so-called "op-eds," are just a lot of noise; this author provides something very different. These are thought pieces, succinctly and logically presented for one's consideration. I came away feeling like I'd had a meaningful interaction and I really enjoyed and appreciated it." Karen Siddall, Amazon 4/5
"Tittle's pieces are atypical of philosophical writing in the best ways: of interest to non-specialists, yet instructive and profound, yet entertaining." Ron Cooper, Professor of Philosophy
"... a passionate, stylistically-engaging writer ..." George, Amazon
