Reviews - What do customers think about On Being Human (Little Books of Wisdom)?

Great Gift for Would-Be Do-Gooders  Feb 17, 2010
Note: this site has grouped together reviews of several different editions of this book; this review is for On Being Human (Little Books of Wisdom).

This book contains an article written by the future 28th POTUS for the Atlantic Monthly in 1897, just after he had achieved tenure as a professor at Princeton, that arguably embodies the essence of his political and personal philosophy, which is both hopeful and historical, the idea that being truly human consists of behaving humanely, that you get more accomplished with temperate, well-balanced reasonableness than with humorless single-mindedness.

Note: One could complain that this book is available online for free. Well, yes, what part of in the public domain do you not understand? However, trying to get away with giving someone a printout as a gift will earn you the nickname of cheapskate. If all you want to do is read it yourself, then by all means stick to the free sites. However, if you are looking for a way to get through to someone else, you are better off buying a copy, and a solitary sawbuck for this sturdy pocket-sized reprint is going to be tough to beat. The chief virtue of it being online is your ability to read it first and make sure that this is the book you want to give before ordering it.
