Rich, Wonderful, and Insightful

In many aspects one can say that Emerson’s essays are a series of motivational, self-improvement articles that are very well written and rich with insight and meaning. No other author’s work truly embodies the beauty of life with so few words. This book is a must read for the serious thinker as well as those interested in philosophy or spirituality.

The reader did a real good job with the dialect and keeping an even pace throughout the read. No matter if you're discovering Emerson for the first time or are already familiar with his work, if you have a philosophical thinking mind you won’t want to pass up these essays.
