The Middle Way: Finding Happiness in a World of Extremes
Though I enjoyed Marinoff's focus on the Middle Way as a life-guiding philosophy, I began to become annoyed with his constant paranoia regarding the American university system (the American Gulag) and the "dangerous" proliferation of postmodernism, amongst other topics. It seems that he could have written two books: one on the Middle Way and another critiquing postmodern Western civilization. Regardless of this, I would recommend this book for its fine synthesis of the respective philosophies of three great Middle Way thinkers: Aristotle, Buddha and Confucius.
