A clear-eyed, thoughtful, and fun survey of the main currents of ancient philosophy with a pragmatic emphasis on their relevance to modern readers. Includes profiles and interviews with people who are putting these ancient ideas and techniques to good use, helping them to live happier, more balanced lives. This is a helpful and important book, and--thanks to Evans' engaging style--a great read.
