I have read it through and through, and constantly consult it for its excellent appendices.
"Nobility" combines a magnificent coffee-table book presention with scholarly content. This masterpiece will open your eyes to the shrouded reality of elites in America. The guiding priniples of outstanding leadership, of nobility, and everyone's duty to seek perfection are clearly laid out.
The ultimate basis to understand the role of the nobility and authentic elites is to be found in the Divine mandate of Jesus Christ, "Be thou perfect as thy heavenly father is perfect." For those who are Jewish, God said to Moses "Walk in my presence and be perfect."
For while it is true that all men are called to be virtuous and moral, the class which has most closely approached this ideal is the noble class. Even if today those from this class perhaps do not live up to their high calling, one should remember that nobility is an ideal that all should strive to reach.
This book is inspiring. It will change forever the way you think about one of the most explosive topics of our time: Elites. Read it. It may well convert you.
Intelligent and beautiful in the same time. Highly recommended...even if, like me, you are not an elite.
