Almost four hundred years ago, the Jesuit Balthasar Gracián published his mysterious work entitled The Art of Worldly Wisdom. The worldly wisdoms it contains are of great value to those who know how to decrypt them.
Best-selling author Andreas Salcher combines this knowledge, thus far only accessible to a few, with the current state of scientific knowledge. He invites you on a journey to self-recognition and shows how each of us can use the Jesuits’ wisdom in our daily lives and lead a better life by doing so: – How to choose friends – How to deal with enemies – The dilemma of emotion versus reason – Seizing the moment – Waiting patiently or act decisively? – The art of being lucky.
