The Art of World Wisdom is one of those rare books that collects the secret but somehow perfectly clear knowledge of life and living, and how to live excellently. Part Machiavelli and part Sun Tzu, Baltasar Gracian’s collection of over 300 maxims provides guidance on living the full life, advancing socially, and becoming a better person overall. Whether you are a 25-hour a day executive, an as-of-yet undiscovered member of the superclass, or a philosopher-dad in training, Gracian’s magnificent work speaks all the way from the 17th century to us here in the 21st.
