There are things that should be common sense to every human being. But not once do we lose the true perspective of our lives and values that should be cherished.This often happens in the times of great stress (as it is popular to say these days).In such moments it helps to remind oneself of these things and one could do that (in lack of no better way) by reading through this book.(I highly recommend reading this book no matter what - I am sure reader will truly enjoy the experience)Again, there is no great wisdom here - only notes from once most powerful man in Europe about everyday life. There are no talk-from-the-high-ground here. Everything is put in simple and understandable way - what we may call universal life truth(s) (again this is not do-it-yourself-in-x-minutes book so do not expect that this book will change your life altogether).Highly recommended.

I have four different translations of the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius; this one is my favorite.
