The Books of Virtue

Everyone recalls Bill Bennett’s best-selling compilation that became The Book of Virtues. Now, with the publication of Harvey Mansfield’s Manliness, we can now contemplate a whole bookshelf of virtues. Start with my Greatness, and then put in your onlne shopping cart James Bowman’s forthcoming book Honor, and add to it Joseph Epstein’s forthcoming book Friendship.

Manliness, Greatness, Honor, and Friendship. Soon to be an Ashbrook Center symposium?

One day these could be sold as a boxed set.

These sound like good ones.

I meant to propose the boxed-set idea, but forgot!

I like the way you think! Maybe if Ashbrook doesn’t move on it fast enough I can use it for one of my programs here in D.C. ;)
