    A Franciscan monk in the 16th century, living in rural Spain, captures the philosophical wisdom of his lifetime, as well as those of his classical education and his community of brothers ... sensitively translated into English (albeit 1890s diction). I bought a copy for myself, as well as for my 18 year old son, heading off to college.

    It may not be as useful as an iPhone or laptop, but the lessons will last a lifetime and never need updating.
