From Library Journal
Maurer retranslates a 17th-century Jesuit's aphorisms and reflections on the morality of success. This long-admired work sounds surprisingly relevant today. It also combines brevity and grace of expression with wise advice, which should appeal to those seeking "how-to" spirituality which is universal, practical, and applicable in business. Recommended for public libraries.

The book had to be translated from Spanish to English. The English isn't all that refined, however, the nuggets of wisdom is absolutely worth it.
The book you don't read, won't help. Invest in yourself today, and pick up the Art of Worldly Wisdom. You will be glad you did.
One of the shortest and best of the 300 little 'wisdom packets' is this:
"Know your Major Defect. Every talent is balanced by a fault, and if you give in to it, it will govern you like a tyrant. You can begin to overthrow it by paying heed to it: begin to conquer it by identifying it. Pay it the same attention as those who reproach you for it. To master yourself, you must reflect upon yourself. Once this imperfectio has surrendered, all others will follow."
If you truly appreciate deeper wisdom emanating from astute observation, then you'll find this to be one of the most practical books on your shelf that you're sure to reference time and time again no matter what your station in life.
This book lays out the way any action or reaction should be handled to your best results. Read it, not once, but as many times as the pebbles in the brook. Each reading will bring you closer to the head of the brook and eventually to the real reason for being.
