Emerson’s words are timeless. Persuasive and convincing, he challenges readers to define their own sense of accomplishment and asks them to measure themselves against their own standards, not those of society. This famous orator has utter faith in individualism and doesn’t invoke beyond what is humanly possible, he just believes deeply that each of us is capable of greatness. He asks us to define that greatness for ourselves and to be true to ourselves.
At times harsh, at times comforting, Emerson’s words guide the reader to challenge their own beliefs and sense of self.
This modern edition of Self-Reliance is ideal for graduates or those who are in the midst of a career or lifestyle change. Emerson's sage guidance wrapped in modern-day reflections is a great reminder about the potential within us all and that life is what you make of it.

A unique view on the human condition that eerily applies to the society we live in to this day. I highly recommend it for somebody who is willing to seriously contemplate things outside of their comfort zones...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
