For centuries, the brightest people in Western societies have looked to Aristotle for guidance on how to lead a good life and how to create a good society. Now James O'Toole – the Mortimer J. Adler Senior Fellow of the Aspen Institute – translates that classical philosophical framework into practical, comprehensible terms to help professionals and business people apply it to their own lives and work. His book helps thoughtful readers address some of the profound questions they are currently struggling with in planning their futures:

  • How do I find meaning and satisfaction?
  • How much money do I need in order to be happy?
  • What is the right balance between work, family, and leisure?
  • What are my responsibilities to my community?
  • How can I create a good society in my own company?

Bridging philosophy and self-help, O'Toole's book shows how happiness ultimately is attainable no matter one's level of income, if one uses Aristotle's practical exercises to ask the right questions and to discipline oneself to pursue things that are "good for us."
