LoveReading Expert Review of Wisdom: A Very Valuable Virtue That Cannot Be Bought

Each chapter focuses on it’s own area of wisdom including: altruism, emotional regulation, critical thinking, empathy, self-discipline and open mindedness.

Philosophising over the many different facets of wisdom. ‘Wisdom: A Very Valuable Virtue That Cannot Be Bought’ by Jason A. Merchey is a look into the idea that wisdom in its many forms is needed to achieve ultimate contentment and satisfaction in life, yet seems to be the one thing that's lacking most from society. Although the author’s main focus and context is in America - it’s people, government and actions (by this I mean the author relates his ideas back to Trump, how America handled the COVID-19 pandemic etc.), the broad scope of ideas throughout this book could be applicable to anyone reading. Each chapter focuses on it’s own area of wisdom including: altruism, emotional regulation, critical thinking, empathy, self-discipline and open mindedness. I liked the layout of this book and that you can read from cover to cover or skip to the sections you have more of an interest in exploring. At the end of each section you can also find that the author has shared an additional “inspirational array of thoughts, beliefs, and quotations from many individuals throughout the ages”. A multifaceted and detailed book that has been well-researched and put together in a way that is clear and easy to understand. ‘Wisdom’ is a book for those with an interest in sociology and philosophy as well as self-improvement.

Wisdom: A Very Valuable Virtue That Cannot Be Bought Synopsis

You can’t buy wisdom. You can’t borrow it. You can’t even steal it. Immensely valuable and desired, yet difficult to acquire, the journey to wisdom has few shortcuts. There are, however, few endeavors more fulfilling. While no one can teach you how to be wise, this carefully researched book by Jason Merchey, author of The Values of the Wise Book Series, may help you grow to love the pursuit of it. In fact, “philosophy” is Greek for “the love of wisdom.” Synthesizing art and science, intellect and emotion, spirituality and Humanism, Merchey provides a compass to help readers navigate toward more personal growth, happiness, and fulfillment in life. A deeply compelling combination of unique and challenging quotations and personal reflections, Merchey’s insights reveal just how life-changing the pursuit of wisdom can be when we learn how to prioritize it.
