The Art of Worldly Wisdom Book Description

The remarkable best-seller -- a long-lost, 300-year-old book of wisdom on how to live successfully yet responsibly in a society governed by self-interest -- as acute as Machiavelli yet as humanistic and scrupulously moral as Marcus Aurelius.
This best-selling book of advice on how to achieve personal and professional success is valued for its timeless insights on how to make one's way in the world. Written in the seventeenth century by a Spanish Jesuit, these teachings are strikingly modern in tone, putting strategy above ethics while reminding the reader that the true search for excellence begins with perfecting oneself.

About the Author :

Baltasar Gracian Y Morales has contributed to The Art of Worldly Wisdom as an author. Baltasar Gracian was an aphorist, imaginary biographer, and novelist, who published studies of ideal figures and handbooks on the arts of rhetoric and comportment. His books include "The Hero, Shrewdness and the Art of the Artist, The Art of Worldly Wisdom, "and "The Master Critic." Many high officials felt attacked by the controversial and critical works of this Jesuit priest-professor. Gracian refused to be censored, and was eventually confined to solitary house arrest, where he died.
