This book is about answering the following question: what would the smartest person of all time know if he were living today in our postmodern, porno-preferrin’, politically corrected, projectile-vomit-inducing, classless, celebrity-worshippin’, no-mercy givin’, grossly under-medicated world?

And what wisdom could he impart to us today, to save us from many of our foolish expenditures of time, money, blood, sweat, tears, our sanity, and even our very lives?

Well, maybe not quite the kind of wisdom you’d think.

The reason for this can be found in the very nature of wisdom, in the very nature of Socrates himself. Socrates knew that knowledge, true knowledge was almost always the direct opposite of the popularly prevailing notions that are on offer within the general population at any given time.
