… a unique, creative, and effective handbook that both illustrates fundamental insights into human nature and sets a straight course for self-enlightenment and fulfillment. A great present not only for recent graduates but for anyone questioning their next step; the issues raised by the Esiles last for a lifetime, and the positive vibe they promote are needed at all stages and ages of life.
