" This is my second reading of this book, a rarity for me. I saw it on the shelf and picked it up as a rest from some of my more taxing reads. I enjoy both the ideas he presents and the words he uses to do so. I recommend this book, with the following caveat: I give it three stars, instead of four, because his biography says that, though he was a millionaire many times over at his death, he left his children virtually nothing. That's the best reason not to increase the value of his estate by buying his books. "
