“And you need more resources to deal with a single person these days than with an entire nation in times past.”
Baltasar Gracián’s knowledge is sprinkled through much of some of my favorite books, and this book is a simple as it gets for any reader. Short, one-or-two-page chapters, deftly translated from Spanish to English, with practical life wisdom. As wikipedia says, “concentration of a maximum of significance in a minimum of form.” I’ll do the same with this review — no more needs to be said.
