This book 'Ancient Greek Pearls of Wisdom for the 21st Century' is about guiding and supporting you to improve your personal, professional and business life in our current 21st century society. I attempt this by:
1. Presenting a set of Ancient Greek Pearls of Wisdom in each area of life (wealth, governance, friendship, etc.) and proposing a solution in responding to basic questions in each such area (e.g. 'Why should I believe in the Supreme Being? and What do I need religion for in my business activities?)
2. Summarizing the impact of several noted ancient Greek thinkers to the world and the relevance of their contributions today.
3. Offering you, an Improvement Approach (The Pandora Way) based on Ancient Greek Wisdom (for each area: governance, wealth, association with others, self-management, education and family, etc.) including: over 60 'tips', more than 40 'golden rules' and numerous (over 20) 'recommendations' that you may consider and use to manage yourself, your family and your business more effectively and potentially make your life better.

(b) Four hymns, the Hippocratic Oath, 9 fables of Aesop, several short stories (over 17) and the works and thoughts of noted ancient Greek philosophers, poets and intellectuals, such as: Aristotle, Plato, Socrates, Heraclitus, Epicurus, Pythagoras, etc.
