The Art of Worldly Wisdom (original 1647; edition 2009)
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385421311, Hardcover)The remarkable best-seller -- a long-lost, 300-year-old book of wisdom on how to live successfully yet responsibly in a society governed by self-interest -- as acute as Machiavelli yet as humanistic and scrupulously moral as Marcus Aurelius.

"Maurer retranslates a 17th-century Jesuit's aphorisms and reflections on the morality of success. This long-admired work sounds surprisingly relevant today. It also combines brevity and grace of expression with wise advice, which should appeal to those seeking 'how-to' spirituality which is universal, practical, and applicable in business" -- www.amazon.com
