    I’m I teenager about to go to college and I think everyone my age should read this book. It’s short it’s message is clear despite being in old English and it really relates to a proper creed to live by.

    Wonderful read. However, I may not agree with everything but It definitely broadened my perspective. Bookmarks for days. I advise any man or women with strong sense of virtue to read; as well as those with little to none.
