The Four Cardinal Virtues

Author - Josef Pieper

This book was required reading for one of my philosophy courses. However, please don't let that turn you off from taking a look at this gem. This was one of those books that I could not put down. The wisdom and insights that Pieper describe certainly will change your life if taken to heart.

I found this book easy to read, practical, and jam-packed with wisdom on how to live a good life based on the thoughts of St. Thomas Aquinas; who many believe is the greatest theologian and philosopher of all-time. I was so excited after reading this book, that I recommended it to many of my peers and friends. To my surprise, one of the guys I mentioned it to said it was his favorite book of all time – and that he reads it once a year.

High praise from two priests – must be worth taking a look at don’t you think?
