In their provocative new book, Barry Schwartz and Kenneth Sharpe explore the core idea of "practical wisdom" - the essential insights we must embrace to lead satisfying lives. Aristotle identified it millennia ago and new scientific research proves that it's just as crucial today: the essential human quality that combines the fruits of our individual experiences with our empathy and intellect. But we have forgotten this, and Schwartz and Sharpe illuminate how to get back in touch with our wisdom. The result is a book that helps us understand that wisdom is above all a practical idea. Practical Wisdom shows us how to identify it, cultivate it, and enact it, and how to make ourselves healthier, wealthier, and wiser.
