One of my absolute favorites

This book was much more than a pleasant surprise. In fact it has instantly become one of my all-time favorites.

Considering that Marcus Aurelius wrote this almost 2000 years ago it is remarkable to see how little has changed. The book opened my eyes and solidified my opinion to a great many universal truths. Definitely worth reading more than once.

In terms of "bang for your buck" I have not come across a better book so far. If you are reading this review right now, get the book you won't regret it.
