Reader recommendation: Meditations

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.


I'm reading Marcus Aurelius's Meditations, translated by Gregory Hays, which for an "ancient work" is surprisingly readable, enjoyable, and practical in everyday living. This book has been said to be one of the 100 greatest books of all time.
