"The Existentialist's Survival Guide is a remarkable book. We can't think of another writer who so thoroughly understands Kierkegaard and his followers, presents their thought more accessibly than they themselves did, and-crucially- relates them concretely to the dark places in his own life, and ours." -- Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein, authors of Plato and a Platypus Walk Into A Bar, and Heidegger and a Hippo Walk Through Those Pearly Gates
"When it comes to living, there's no getting out alive. But books can help us survive...by passing on what is most important about being human before we perish. Marino has produced an honest and moving book of self-help for readers generally disposed to loathe the genre." -- The Wall Street Journal
"Marino's brilliant The Existentialist's Survival Guide: How to Live Authentically in an Inauthentic Age. . . gives existentialism a 21st-century presence more gripping, nuanced, and convincing than in its initial American portrayal 60 years ago. . . The prose is electric, illustrating the point that existentialism is also literary." -- The Los Angeles Review of Books
"[Marino] brings his life story together with philosophy in this lively account of how existentialism can enhance life and awaken empathy amid the realities of anxiety, death, and depression. . . His disarming honesty and sense of humor make the book easy to read despite its heavy subject matter." -- The Christian Century
