Book Overview
Use human means as though divine ones did not exist, and use divine means as though there were no human ones. So wrote the Jesuit scholar Baltazar Gracian some 300 years ago, in a book that will be compared to Sun Tzu's The Art of War and Machiavelli's The Prince. A new translation of long lost wisdom on living successfully yet responsibly.
Editor Reviews
From the front Cover The remarkable best-seller -- a long-lost, 300-year-old book of wisdom on how to live successfully yet responsibly in a society governed by self-interest -- as acute as Machiavelli yet as humanistic and scrupulously moral as Marcus Aurelius.
