A long-lost, 300-year-old book of wisdom on how to live successfully yet responsibly in a society governed by self-interest. As acute as Machiavelli yet as humanistic and scrupulously moral as Marcus Aurelius.
This book has 121 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1647: this translation by Joseph Jacobs, 1892.
Production notes: This ebook of The Art of Worldly Wisdom was published by Global Grey in 2018.
