I read this after reading Michael Sandel's Justice, wanting to read the original works. The writing, diction, terminology can be difficult at times-- requiring frequently referring to the translator notes and introduction, but what you get, at least in the first 5 chapters and tenth chapter, is a well-thought work on what is to be a good human being, a theme we don't here about much -- at least unpoliticized. Happiness according to Aristotle is fulfilling your potential as a human being, which requires not only education and contemplation- or just knowing what's right - but action. Likes anything else, for character too practice makes perfect. Read this and decide for yourself if he is right.
I wish I had read this book sooner. If you have the time, I highly recommend this book.
