Concision wins every time,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Penguin Great Ideas : On the Shortness of Life (Mass Market Paperback)
I love these Great Ideas books, even if the choices are a little predictable and already embedded in the English canon: it just helps somehow to have such words to carry around. The somewhat narrow pool of offerings could be widened by more Scottish texts in particular, and more work in translation that has not earned its places solely through service to the Western canon. Seneca though. The man.
