Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 014044193X, Paperback)

Theophrastus, pupil of Aristotle and heir to the Lyceum, was known by the title "divine speaker" because of his powers of observation and eloquence. In this text, 30 character types are depicted, revealing that human nature has changed little over two millennia.
