Responding to the modern age in which many find that religion does not speak to them, AC Grayling has compiled this secular equivalent to the Judeo-Christian and Islamic holy books, using the same techniques of selection, editing and adaptation which created them. These 'distillations of the wisdom and experience of humankind', divided into books, chapters and verses, derive from hundreds of texts, by authors such as Herodotus, Confucius and Montaigne, which offer advice on how to live a good life.
