Happiness and Success: Pragmatic Rationalism and Lessons from Lord Chesterfield (Paperback)Frank Vivelo (author)
Paperback 142 Pages / Published: 01/06/2009

A different kind of how-to book, the practical and philosophical go hand-in-hand. Part One is a coherent blend of epicureanism, stoicism, empiricism, and existentialism, simply and understandably presented in everyday language. It answers many of the most controversial questions of moral philosophy in about 50 pages. Part Two reorganizes and rewrites Chesterfield's advice for becoming a success in society, summarized from hundreds of his letters. The result is a self-help book for the thinking person, for thoughtful readers not only concerned with success but with living within a broader, more meaningful framework or philosophical perspective.
