Praise

“[A] lucid account… nontechnical but deeply grounded… Can happiness come from virtue? This lively book makes a good argument in the affirmative.” — Kirkus Review

“Delivers an expansive, practical assessment of Aristotle… She handles weighty, difficult topics such as depression and everyday tasks such as preparing for an important meeting or job interview with the same measured, clear prose… her book is an engaging, thrilling approach to Aristotle’s pragmatic thought. It is a useful introduction to the ideas of one of the most important philosophers in world history.” — Publishers Weekly

“With vivid, page-turning prose, Aristotle’s Way invites you into the wise, practical, intentional, self-determined world of Aristotle’s mind. Nearly everything that psychological scientists have discovered about happiness was anticipated by Aristotle 23 centuries ago. You will be a slightly different person after finishing this beautiful book than you were before you started.” —Sonja Lyubomirsky, author of The How of Happiness
 
“A wonderfully lively and personal guide to Aristotle’s philosophy of well-being.  Read it and flourish!” —Sarah Bakewell, author of How to Live: A Life of Montaigne
 
“Where there’s a will, there’s a way: Aristotle did it his way, Edith Hall – magnificently – does it hers, in this combined critical appreciation and celebration of the philosopher-scientist whom Karl Marx hailed as a ‘giant thinker’. Readers keen to live a Good Life – and prepare for a Good Death – should dive head first into this fount of ancient but still modern wisdom.” —Paul Cartledge, A.G. Leventis Professor of Greek Culture Emeritus at the University of Cambridge
