How Plato and Pythagoras Can Save your Life
The Ancient Greek Prescription for Health and HappinessBook - 2011
"When New Yorks Big City nightclub owner Nick Kardaras woke up from a heroin overdosedoctors had already declared him dead he felt a desperation to understand not only why hed been spared but what his addiction had been all about. His search for answers took him far and wide until he stumbled on the works of the ancient Greeks. In their writings, which he had always dismissed as dry and academic, he discovered brilliant, life-affirming teachings about the importance of a healthy mind, body, and spirit nurtured by vigorous physical exercise, a rigorous diet, and daily meditation and contemplation. In short, he found a path to bliss that had nothing to do with drugs."--Publisher's description.
