If you read a review that stated "Drawing on Aristotle, Montaigne, Cicero and Pliny, Epstein lucidly paraphrases and applies wisdom to his own life experience, producing a meditative memoir that is refined and modest in tone, but perhaps too hermetic," would you expect to see something like this? The crazy Rankin Bass type seems really inappropriate.

I like the description of the book- but then the cover doesn't work. Is it just me or do the eyes look vaguely like Ben Afflick and Matt Damon locked in a semi-homo erotic eye tango?
