Another classic by the modern misnamed Epicurus who did not stand for eating too much or too much sex, but for loving life and preserving that love with the smaller delights to be found daily. Give it try.

Should have a selection of quotes

Good collection with interesting footnotes. This won't read like Sedaris or Lamott, but we should all read it nonetheless. This guy had it going on, and I'm glad someone wrote down what he said.

I'm more of a Stoic, but this is a good book that offers some truths to readers willing to really read into the ideas and mull them over.

Epicurus offered a way of living as we age, which seems attainable if one ages with the right attitude. Very interesting, except some passages were difficult to comprehend. Overall, Epicurus' writing makes one think.

It's a good read. A different picture of Epicurus. It has a prominent place in my library.

The Look Inside contents is of the Kindle edition, not the physical edition. This is what's in the physical edition:

Introduction
Letter to Herodotus
Letter to Pythocles
Letter to Menoeceus
Principle Doctrines
Vatican Sayings
Fragments

Here are the discrepancies:
Letter to Idomeneus is missing.
Last Will is missing.
Ideas for Life is missing.
Fragments is extra.
