Every Time I Find the Meaning of Life, They Change It [eBook] : Wisdon of the Great Philosophers on How to Live
Klein, Daniel2015
A humorous and philosophical trip through life, from the Times-bestselling author of Travels with Epicurus. As a young college student studying philosophy, Klein filled a notebook with short quotes from the world's greatest thinkers, hoping to find some guidance on how to live the best life he could. Now, from the vantage point of his eighth decade, Klein revisits the wisdom he relished in his youth with this collection of philosophical gems, adding new ones that strike a chord. From Epicurus to Emerson and Camus to Reinhold Nieburh—whose words provide the title of this book—each pithy extract is annotated with Klein's inimitable charm and insights. He tackles life's biggest questions, leaving us entertained and enlightened. Daniel Klein is the author the Times-bestseller Travels with Epicurus and the co-author, with Thomas Cathcart, of the international bestseller Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar. A graduate of Harvard, in philosophy, he is the co-author of twenty-five other books. He lives in western Massachusetts with his wife, Freke Vuijst. 'You would, of course, expect a book on philosophy to be filled with wise words, and this one is, but it also contains plenty of laugh-out-loud observations (even the glossary, which ought to be read at the beginning, is amusing), as well as the odd lump-in-the-throat moment. A very enjoyable read.' BookMooch 'Witty and engaging.' Age/Sydney Morning Herald 'Hearty and humorous...You may not come out with the meaning of life or love sorted, but you will have expanded your brain, and that can't hurt.' New Daily 'A simple but delightful idea...There are many books that offer a degustation menu of morsels of philosophy. Daniel Klein is able to make a party of them.' Age/Sydney Morning Herald 'A breathtaking, entertaining and thoroughly digestible guide to some of the best thoughts ever thunk.' Weekly Review
