    1. I would ve given this book 3 stars, but this edition is not worth buying There is a bitter controversy amongst African American scholars about the ethnicity of Egyptians The ancient Egyptians were most likely a mixed race of white, black, and semite, but were definitely not all black The publishers of this edition belong to a small school of thought that holds the Egyptians were all black, and invented Judaism, Christianity, and Democratic government they also claim that the ancient civilization [...]



    2. When you realize that this book was written in 2350BC, then you understand where the later civilizations sourced the inspiration and knowledge of ethics from These maxims may sound a bit naive for a modern reader, but if you put the passed 4360 years between you and the book, you realize that you owe a bow to the author for his wisdom The Hebrews, the Romans and then the Greeks have all benefitted enormously from the originality of Egyptian thoughts but are retold in their own lands today If you [...]


    3. It was part of the Wisdom of the East series, but I liked the version because Gunn was straightforward and sincere in his introduction

    6. If this was not so old it would be irrelevant It has nothing of practical value, no tools that are not common knowledge Yet this is a pleasant read Very entertaining to find that this Egyptian had the same philosophy of life as I Follow your heart as long as you live,And do not work beyond what is allocated to you.Do not waste the time of following the heart,for wasting time is an annoyance of the spirit.Do not lose the hours of daylightBeyond what is necessary for keeping your household in orde [...]


    7. Rather like an ancient Egyptian version of the Dao de Jing, if the Dao de Jing were secretly ghost written by a certain Niccolo Machiavelli Add a certain paternalistic Confucian benevolence mix haphazardly, and do not bother straining for lumps.Ya rly.
