My only complaint is how short this was! I really enjoyed reading these lucid, humorous, often sardonic insights on everday life from a man who was closely aquainted with the heavy hitting philosophical and revolutionary minds of the era. As the translator prefaces, Chamfort is an unfortunatley unfamiliar name in the English speaking world not only in regards to his own writings but also to the extent he has influenced such notorious thinkers as Beckett, Nietzsche and Proust.
