This is one of the top five or ten books ever written on the subject of living well. What is true friendship? What is true wealth? Where do we find happiness? How do we recognize obstacles that we have created for ourselves? What is death? Is it really something to fear? What is "necessary" and what is "enough?" Is it better to read widely or well?This wonderful collection of letters can be picked up at any moment and opened to any page. But you will quickly find that these are lessons to be absorbed. The essays can be used in a series for your book club!Some people have objected to his views on death. Seneca suggests that we cannot live freely or fully if we live in fear. And our greatest fear is death. If we regard death with equanimity, if we regard all parts of life with equanimity, we can begin truly to live. 2000 years on Seneca remains a "must read."

Composed by Seneca the Younger during his retirement after he had worked for Nero for more than a decade, these letters to procurator of Sicily Lucilius Junior inspired Montaigne and a host of others with their practical wisdom, eclectic Stoicism, and varied rhetoric.
