Elaborate Description

This books is a marvelous revision of Adam Smith's first book 'Theory of Moral Sentiments'. Roberts translates antediluvian examples which have different meaning into modern day language and examples in keeping with the original meaning. This book shows the meaning in the feedback that we get from everyone in society. The lessons that any reader can learn from this book are timeless. It seems that just attaining something has less importance than actually deserving of something. A small flaw is when Roberts makes an example that takes a lot of time to get to the purpose of it.
