    Handy Greek Philosophy/21 Century applications survey

    With a nod toward the dangers of vanity, I like to pride myself as rarely allowing opportunity to be bored. Standing in lines, waiting nearby while my wife checks a store are among familiar scenarios. I always keep a newspaper or news magazine handy, but books like Plato's Podcast are especially effective armor against boredom. I keep it in the back seat of my car for useful moments. The genre is established: a philosopher or writer applies thoughts by selected ancient philosophers or religious outlook to life's all too common situations and irritations. This volume is among the better available, connecting ancient Greek philosophers to known people living today. Each selection makes the philosopher human, warm, familiarly flawed, often humorously portrayed. Every small segment provides much for you to drink from along with easily fitting under your arm or in a slightly large pocket. Most importantly, it is much less demanding of your immediate attention than any electronic device no matter how small. You don't have to worry about turning it off in a theater or doctors' office. It won't buzz, beep, vibrate or otherwise demand your own instant response when something else in sight/hearing range is likely better. Buy it. Keep it handy.
