In Spinoza in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern offers a concise, expert account of Spinoza's life and ideas, and explains their influence on man's struggle to understand his eixstence in the world. The book also includes selections from Spinoza's writings; a brief list of suggested reading for those who wish to push further; and chronologies that place Spinoza within his own age and in the broader scheme of philosophy.

"Each of these little books is witty and dramatic and creates a sense of time, place, and character. . . . I cannot think of a better way to introduce oneself and one's friends to Western civilization".--Katherine A. Powers, "Boston Globe".
