it was amazing

This is a book that is meant to be studied. It explores the nuances of human nature in such a way that is very easy to understand, and very multifaceted and deep at the same time. The stories He uses as illustrations are quite memorable and show the lesson very well. He covers stories about people like Martin Luther King Jr, Queen Elizabeth and John D. Rockefeller to name a few. He uses real, historical stories then breaks down the law of human nature it demonstrates step by step. By the end of each story and overview you can’t help but think, “how did I never notice that trait, especially in myself?” This is a book I’ll definitely have to reread and continue to study as I feel I’ve only scraped the surface of all it has to offer. His chapter on our own mortality was also very interesting and a stoic perspective on that reality we will all face one day. He himself suffered a serious stroke before the book was finished which made that chapter all the more authentic and revealing.
