I heard about this essay after reading the 4 Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferris, and I was really inspired by Seneca's advice on how to use one's short time on Earth.

Seneca is a classic thinker whose primary belief is that happiness can be attained only through the pursuit of reason. This is an interesting look at the thoughts of Seneca threw a collection of letters to his father-in-law Paulinus.

Seneca is a classic thinker whose primary belief is that happiness can be attained only through the pursuit o f reason is the perfect antidote to the fake news and manipulative claptrap being spouted in the early 21st century. This is a strong new edition, thoughtfully embellished, well organized, and highly useful, whether you are familiar with Seneca's works or ready to begin absorbing them.
