The great writings of American transcendentalist philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) are not some distant ponderings on life – they are works of the highest practicality, intended to supply guidance and daily help. Emerson’s ideas arose from his simple observations of human existence, with all its pitfalls and possibilities.
Reading and listening to Emerson brings the wisdom of the ages down to earth. This collection is drawn from his most practical and best-loved works. Each points you toward better and fuller ways of living.

"Wasn't able to finish it."
I'm sure there was plenty I could learn from this book, but I've grown tired of his style of writing.
He writes with complicated words to obscure simple ideas without justification. Even if many of those ring true, it does not support trust in his words.
I might revisit it, since I might not be susceptible to gain anything from it. Many have praised his writing.
Repetitive, long winded, and struggles to get to the point. Overall disappointing. First book I have read by RWE and I think it will be the last.
