Public opinion is a weak tyrant compared with our own private opinion. What a man thinks of himself, that it is which determines, or rather indicates, his fate.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Walden is a self-help book, perhaps the ultimate self-help book, urging us to show up for our own lives, to have the courage to find our own convictions and to try to live them out. . . . [Thoreau is] a writer of immense humanity, vitality and humor. . . . One hundred fifty years after its publication, Walden also remains a practical, usable manual on how to lead a good, and just life. . . . At its core, Walden is about the project of personal freedom, self-emancipation, which is where all pursuits of freedom must start."--Robert D. Richardson, "Smithsonian Magazine"

"Each [volume] is preceded by a substantive, lively and idiosyncratic essay. . . . Together, the essays are a mini-course in Thoreau and the trends he launched in American thought."--Nancy Szokan, "Washington Post Book World"

About the Author

Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862) was an American author, naturalist, transcendentalist, tax resister, development critic, philosopher, and abolitionist who is best known for Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay, Civil Disobedience, an argument for individual resistance to civil government in moral opposition to an unjust state.

I'm sorry but this book is impossible to read. The font size is so tiny one gets strained eyes after a bit. Text comes in 3 columns per page for some reason which adds to the "pleasure". The pages are not even numbered. No thanks

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 27, 2019
If you don’t mind suffering from eyestrain then this paperback is for you. I was so looking forward to a few hours of leisurely reading about Thoreau’s Walden pond experience and was very excited when the book arrived. The disappointment was great when I looked at the first few pages. Why would you publish a book that would require the average reader to resort to magnifying glasses in order to read it? For instance, the letter “t” measures just barely over 1 millimeter – not even close to 2 millimeters. For comparison I photographed pages from two other books with standard print; one is a page from a book by Jeffrey Archer and the other a page from Prentice Mulford’s “Thoughts are Things.” The tiny print of “Walden” doesn’t appear to be all that small in the photos, but they were taken with the camera’s Macro setting, otherwise you wouldn’t have been able to see/read it at all. Unless you have eyes like a hawk forget this edition. Very disappointing.
