Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Maurer retranslates a 17th-century Jesuit's aphorisms and reflections on the morality of success. This long-admired work sounds surprisingly relevant today. It also combines brevity and grace of expression with wise advice, which should appeal to those seeking ``how-to'' spirituality which is universal, practical, and applicable in business. Recommended for public libraries.
