If you feel that you don't have the time to read the whole of Henry David Thoreau's words of wisdom in his book Walden; then this small book can be read as you commute to work as snippets from a wise man sink in to your mind just as if they were sound bites.
This is the man who influenced Count Leo Tolstoy to take up Ahimsa or nonviolence, Tolstoy then recommended this to Mahatma Gandhi, then the ideas of peace eventually flowed back to USA to Martin Luther King and a generation who rejected the words of war and a refusal to see all as brothers from the establishment.
Here are dew drops of quiet reasoning which infiltrates the hasty world of 21st Century speeded up existence; here are gems that could show a way through our modern madness.

An appeal toward simplicity in life. Recognising the value of living and the insignificance of the importance we place in existence and the daily happenings of life as society considers valuable.

If you like Henry Thoreau there isn't much I can say about the book. I will like it for sure.
True to himself.

This book was on a wish list and arrived within a day or two of ordering. I can't comment on the book as it isn't for me, but all I can say is that it arrived in perfect condition and being able to order items straight from a wish list has saved a lot of time and hassle for me!
