What Is Wisdom?: A Collection of Practical Thoughts for Better Decisions in Life

Life is full of important decisions, and they all have consequences. Large or small, positive or negative, intended or unintended. Would you consider yourself wise when it comes to the choices you make?
With room to write down your own thoughts and ideas, What Is Wisdom? invites you to practice many ways of thinking developed by philosophers throughout history, helping you make better decisions in an uncertain world.
The ability to switch between these ways of thinking will lead you to clearer distinctions between what matters and what doesn’t and guide you toward regret-free decisions. It will give you the courage to take action when the opportunity arises, the prudence to pause when perspective is needed, and the diligence to follow through to get closer to where you want to be.
May you enjoy with each step the sense of mastery, freedom, and wonder that awaits you.

You are not alone in this struggle, and with this book, you’ll be empowered with a strong sense of choice in life, no matter what kind of situations come your way.
