Reader recommendation: Plutarch's Lives
Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.
Retired? Retired military? Don't miss the chance to read Plutarch's Lives. (The John Dryden translation). I suggest that you read only one life per week. Savor the human heart, all of it. Admire the military strategies so old, so new. Politics: same, same, same. And real heroes. Real values. Deep thinking. Well worth your time.
