I see what he is getting at, but I find his grammar stilted, antiquated and hard to follow.35
waste of time. write like a normal human in normal english please15
I’m I teenager about to go to college and I think everyone my age should read this book. It’s short it’s message is clear despite being in old English and it really relates to a proper creed to live by.55
Wonderful read. However, I may not agree with everything but It definitely broadened my perspective. Bookmarks for days. I advise any man or women with strong sense of virtue to read; as well as those with little to none.35

This is a well written book. It provides alternate perspectives and offers thought out ideas. I would recommend this book to anyone.55
Never gets old55
