About the Author
Lucius Annaeus Seneca (c.4BC-AD65) was born in Cordoba, Spain, where he was brought up studying the traditional virtues of republican Roman life. He became a teacher of rhetoric but attracted attention for his incisive style of writing. Closely linked to Nero, his death was ordered by the emperor in AD65. Seneca committed suicide.
Robin Campbell is a well-known translator.

On my shelf this book is next to the Bible, the Tao Te Ching, and Stephen King.
It's also a book I've read passages aloud to my younger siblings during a day in the park -- that was no easy task -- but they were held captive by the introspection this book helps to trigger.
If you are a heavy annotator, as I am, this book will suit you as there is a little more room for personal notes and summations.
Lots of references to things/people/Gds that can be hard to follow but the gems still shine through. Very worthwhile.
