Read in October, 2009

This concise book provides the reader with three letters from Stoic philosopher Seneca, written over 2000 years ago.

The insight that remains poingant throught is that of temperance, frugality and moderation. These three key Stoic attributes are discussed in various forms, from a sorrowful mother, to an over-ambitios statesman.

Reccomended.
