"This book is marvellous and unique in its content. The book will discuss one of the main notions in philosophy - the concept of existence. ... this is an excellent book and I recommend it to your personal library if you are a graduate student and/or researcher working in ontology. It is written by one of the greatest authorities in the field and it is a complete work." (Philosophy, Religion and Science, June, 2016)
