"There is no better entry to Deleuze than these brilliant accounts of his individual works. Witty, unpretentious, yet rigorous, erudite and illuminating, Roffe’s readings make palpable the vital force of Deleuze’s thought. A truly remarkable book—compelling, provocative and original." - Ronald Bogue, University of Georgia
"Lively, engaged and erudite, this is an impressive yet accessible reading of Deleuze’s singular contributions to contemporary philosophy. Roffe provides Deleuze’s work with a truly Deleuzian reading." - Elizabeth Grosz, Duke University
"I am often asked which book by Deleuze one should read first, and I finally have a response: start with Jon Roffe’s book. For readers old and new, Roffe’s book is destined to become one of the classic guides to Deleuze’s works." - Daniel W. Smith, Purdue University
