    2. There are some nice pithy saying in this little book Some interesting ideas about how to lead your life in the 17th centurych like Franklin s autobiography in the 18th centuryd even some insights into Renaissance society But as a whole, it s not a very compelling book let If I were a Renaissance literature scholar, I m sure this would be far interesting, but I didn t find much in Bacon s writing that really had much meat to it And I m a little confused as to why it s of empire.

    5. interesting short book with some very insightful quotes about a variety of subjects like revenge, marriage, love, envy, cunning, ambition, beauty, studying, anger its francis bacons few pages on each of those types of subjects some intersting thoughts raised around hundred pages only.

    6. Excellent little essays to my mind an obvious model for those of A.C Grayling on philosophical and practical matters.

    7. he is telling already known things through everyday experiences in an unusually complex use of words that could be told in a easy way
