9788177693188: The Art of Living

A new translation by Sergio E. Serrano of this inspirational book containing sound advice on the art of living by the French historian, biographer, and philosopher, André Maurois (1885 - 1967), who was one of the most celebrated and prolific writers of the 20th century.

  • Timeless wisdom and advice on the art of living for today’s young and old:
  • The art of thinking;
  • the art of loving;
  • the art of working;
  • the art of leadership;
  • the art of growing old.
  • Maurois speaks to the soul of the reader. The principles he conveys remain as valid and as useful in the 21st century as they were in the 20th.

  • According to Maurois, our lives are works of art, expressions of inner beauty, conceived and created by our inner selves, tested by the circumstances and experiences of life, perfected and modified by the learning and growth resulting from these experiences.

  • Maurois speaks to the soul of the reader. The principles he conveys remain as valid and as useful in the 21st century as they were in the 20th.

  • Maurois accurately predicted:

  • the ultimate failure of all social revolutions;
  • the necessity of slow change in human customs and attitudes as a key to lasting changes;
  • the technological development and implementation of robots in large assembly lines;
  • the characteristics of a reasonable and effective government;
  • the inner virtues to cultivate in order to successfully overcome the adversities of life;
  • the qualities to seek in order to maintain stable, loving, relationships;
  • the attributes to encourage as an effective manager;
  • the essentials by which to plan a long and enjoyable retirement;
  • the principles behind an effective educational system.

  • An Art of Living remained out of print for several decades. This new translation resurrects this little treasure of a book for the English readers of today; it remains faithful to the original French edition and to the style of the author.

    INDEPENDENT REVIEWS

    "...Reading this book of essays on the phases of life (The Art of Thinking, of Loving, of Working, of Leading and of Growing Old, with a brief chapter on The Art of Dying and a concluding 'Letter to Young Men') is rather like having a frank discussion with a worldly-wise uncle seeking to impart his hard-won wisdom ... The book is beautifully illustrated, and Maurois accompanies his essays with abundant historical examples and carefully selected quotations from famous historical figures ... I highly recommend this book for it's insights and readability; it's like reading a twentieth century Montaigne." Mark Johnson. Goodreads.

    About the Author:

    André Maurois, or Emile Salomon Wilhelm Herzog, (July 26, 1885 - October 9, 1967) was a French author and a man of letters. "André Maurois" was a pen name that became his legal name in 1947. He was born in Elbeuf and educated in Rouen, both in Normandy. During World War I he joined the French army and he served as an interpreter and later a liaison officer in the British army. His first novel Les silences du colonel Bramble was a witty but socially realistic account of that experience. It was an immediate success in France. It was translated and also became popular in the United Kingdom and other English speaking countries as The Silence of Colonel Bramble. Many of his other works have been translated in English, because they often dealt with British figures or topics, like his biographies of Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield, Lord Byron or Shelley. He became a member of the Académie française in 1938. During World War II he served in the French army and the Free French Forces. He died in 1967 after a long career as an author of novels, biographies, histories, and children's books. He is buried in the Neuilly-sur-Seine community cemetery near Paris.

    Dr. Sergio E. Serrano received his Ph.D. degree at the University of Waterloo (Canada). He is a full professor of engineering science and applied mathematics at a Research I university in the U. S. For the past thirty years, he has taught in several universities in the United States, Canada, Colombia, Spain, and China. He has over one hundred research publications in international science, engineering, and mathematics journals. He is also the author of nine books in environmental engineering, statistics, philosophy, and psychology. Dr. Serrano has been awarded four times with nationally-competitive research grants by the National Science Foundation, Washington, DC.
