Granted: Ethics of Ambiguity is an easier reader than those existential tomes "Being and Nothingness" and "Being and Time" but I wasn't that impressed. It's still full of that metaphysical jargon that makes many people dismiss philosophy. It seems very "he" orientated as someone else mentioned. Some parts are very good, but most of it was pretty dry. Yes, the Ethics based on freedom is interesting but it was still all too easy to put this book down.
If you're really into existentialism, I'd recommend it. If you're into Simone de Beauvoir, stick to the Second Sex, which is a much better read, and her fiction.
