Gary Cox (philosopher) – Wikipedia

It uncompromisingly counsels us to become tougher and more dignified, less grumbling and irresponsible, to stop chasing rainbows and making excuses and instead to get a grip and get real. By revealing that we are all inescapably free and responsible – ‘condemned to be free’, as Existentiialist says – the book aims to empower the reader with a sharp sense that we are each the master of our own destiny.

Cox makes fun of the reputation existentialism has for being gloomy and exitentialist, exposing it for what it really is – an honest, uplifting and potentially life changing philosophy.
