PLEASE NOTE - the other review attached to this book states this comes with a dictionary, but it is NOT about this edition. That other review is on the kindle edition, and was attached to this item in error. This edition does NOT have a dictionary (That would be helpful being that this book was written so long ago. I was looking forward to having it..but this does not have it.) I reported the other review as being mistakenly/accidentally attached to the wrong item, so it might be removed by the time someone else reads this.
A famous quote from this work is "That government is best which governs least". Today's bloated government would literally drive him mad. I've also read "Walden" and it expresses similar sentiments.
This short pamphlet should be read by everyone. I would personally love to see less government and agree that civil disobedience is a very good way to encourage change. It sounds like politicians back then were similar to what we have today. Some things never change.
These kindle freebies have given me a great and easy way to review several items I have wanted to read for years.
