Peter Bevelin begins his fascinating book with Confucius' great wisdom: "A man who has committed a mistake and doesn't correct it, is committing another mistake." Seeking Wisdom is the result of Bevelin's learning about attaining wisdom. His quest for wisdom originated partly from making mistakes himself and observing those of others but also from the philosophy of super-investor and Berkshire Hathaway Vice Chairman Charles Munger. A man whose simplicity and clarity of thought was unequal to anything Bevelin had seen. In addition to naturalist Charles Darwin and Munger, Bevelin cites an encyclopedic range of thinkers: from first-century BCE Roman poet Publius Terentius to Mark Twain—from Albert Einstein to Richard Feynman—from 16th Century French essayist Michel de Montaigne to Berkshire Hathaway Chairman Warren Buffett. In the book, he describes ideas and research findings from many different fields. This book is for those who love the constant search for knowledge. It is in the spirit of Charles Munger, who says, "All I want to know is where I'm going to die so I'll never go there." There are roads that lead to unhappiness. An understanding of how and why we can "die" should help us avoid them. We can't eliminate mistakes, but we can prevent those that can really hurt us. Using exemplars of clear thinking and attained wisdom, Bevelin focuses on how our thoughts are influenced, why we make misjudgments and tools to improve our thinking. Bevelin tackles such eternal questions as: Why do we behave like we do? What do we want out of life? What interferes with our goals? Read and study this wonderful multidisciplinary exploration of wisdom. It may change the way you think and act in business and in life.

But it is worth far, far, far more than the relatively miniscule price - and it is worth reading many times.
And it is worth implementing into your life - for what value is reading other than to create value itself! The value that can be derived from this book will, in my opinion, be beyond that of at least most of the books you've read - combined.
It has so much great content that I made a page on my key website (in the search engine next week) so that I could derive all the value out of it for myself, and hopefully help a few others along the way (which is the purpose of the site).
And, yes, it has some rather deep and analytical parts to it that take some concentration and attention. Those might be skipped on the initial reading, but I would recommend going back and reading them - and converting them (if they seem to be about investing or other seeming "non-life" topics) into truths about life.
Buy it. Read it. You will never regret buying it.
And you'll be able to get so much out of it for your own life, along with the great value you will undoubtedly give to others from how you live your life and what you share.
