              Timeless advice about how to use humor to win over any audience Can jokes win a hostile room, a hopeless argument, or even an election? You bet they can, according to Cicero, and he knew what he was talking about. One of Rome's greatest politicians, speakers, and lawyers, Cicero ...was also reputedly one of antiquity's funniest people. After he was elected commander-in-chief and head of state, his enemies even started calling him the stand-up Consul. How to Tell a Joke provides a lively new translation of Cicero's essential writing on humor alongside that of the later Roman orator and educator Quintilian. The result is a timeless practical guide to how a well-timed joke can win over any audience. As powerful as jokes can be, they are also hugely risky. The line between a witty joke and an offensive one isn't always clear. Cross it and you'll look like a clown, or worse. Here, Cicero and Quintilian explore every aspect of telling jokes-while avoiding costly mistakes. Presenting the sections on humor in Cicero's On the Ideal Orator and Quintilian's On the Orator's Education, complete with an enlightening introduction and the original Latin on facing pages, How to Tell a Joke examines the risks and rewards of humor and analyzes basic types that readers can use to write their own jokes. Filled with insight, wit, and examples, including more than a few lawyer jokes, How to Tell a Joke will appeal to anyone interested in humor or the art of public speaking.

              This fine edition of Cicero's treatises on the topics of friendship, old age and life contains the respected translation of E. S. Shuckburgh. Written in the second century A.D., these writings encapsulate the wisdom and ability possessed by their author. Already well into maturit...y, it is here that the accumulated experience of a man who had - in an illustrious career of public service in the Roman Empire - seen and known all manner of events and people in his bustling society. The attributes important to friendship are identified by Cicero as he discusses the qualities a good friend should have. There are several intractable virtues of friendship, which must be preserved lest the union be damaged. The second treatise elaborates upon what it is to be old. Writing so as to echo the much esteemed Cato the Elder, the beauty and profundity of the words in this essay are significant. The clear and plain yet succinct and wistfully eloquent words elaborate on aging and the concerns that arrive with it.

              This comprehensive anthology of Cicero's works contains his Tuscalan Disputations, his treatises on the divine, and the 'De re Publica' - otherwise known as On the Commonwealth. Originally conceived by Cicero as a method of popularising the Stoical form of philosophy to which he ...subscribed, the Tusculan Disputations explain, in five books on specific topics, the principles and merits of the Stoic outlook on life. The benefits of adopting the Stoical mindset, from a rational, measured reaction to physical pain and illness, to the mental anguish of losing a loved one, are examples of what Cicero explores. Although the Disputations chiefly convey thoughts of other, prior thinkers, they contain Cicero's distinct voice on the subject. Written with the literate clarity and flair which defines the author's body of work, the Disputations persuasively identify, discuss and expound qualities of the philosophy to which Cicero ascribed his mentality in life.
