“Shakespeare’s Book of Wisdom” (De Portola Press 2018)

If you’re searching for a meaningful gift for a teenager, young adult, or even yourself, I’ve got you covered.

My new book “Shakespeare’s Book of Wisdom: Advice on Living a Wiser, Happier Life from William Shakespeare & Friends” just arrived. You can order a copy through this website (www.robcrisell.com) or the “Shop Now” button on this page on my Face Book page https://www.facebook.com/robcrisellactor/ . The book is $11, but winds up being almost $15 with tax and shipping. Let me know if you’d like me to inscribe the book to anyone.

“Shakespeare’s Book of Wisdom” consists of original pieces of advice (e.g. “Don’t let your anger control you”) highlighted by a line from the Bard illustrating the advice (“Anger’s my meat; I sup upon myself, / And so shall starve with feeding.” Coriolanus, Act 4, Scene 2) and a “translation” of the line. I also include my own brief commentary. Every section concludes with a quote from another wise person (Dante, Einstein, Plato, et al).

I hope you enjoy reading the book as much as I did writing it. Thank you!
