This is a gift to yourself. It is an amazing read. You will need a good notebook to write down all the magnificent thoughts and ideas that this man uncovered and shared with the world. I am truly a fan of Emerson. I am now reading an autobiography of his life. Ralph Waldo Emerson is one of the greats. His idealogies of being your own self and not a sheep is one that a lot of these clones could use today.
I recommend this book to everyone. One person found this helpful.

In "The Varieties of Religious Experience," William James devotes an early chapter to a type of personality most of us have known: This "healthy mind," says James, is easy to see in a person like Walt Whitman and he would doubtless have included Ralph Waldo Emerson as another obvious example. In such persons, according to James, "happiness is congenital and irreclaimable.
The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried. This is most excellent advice, and should be followed while reading Emerson or anyone else. You will find yourself disagreeing with him from time to time, and Emerson himself would surely approve and applaud. The physical book reviewed here is extremely well-edited and well-made.
The introduction by Mary Oliver is excellent and helpful. Unless you become a true Emerson devotee, this volume is likely to be all you need. Big and heavy for a paperback with tissue thin paper, very small print and marvelous contents. Worth the extra effort in reading these choice pieces at this bargain price in a convenient collection. If the words of Whitman do not prompt one to at least explore the ideas of Ralph Waldo Emerson, nothing I say will be able to or should. I suppose though many readers have merely seen Emerson's name after a famous quote or heard it mentioned by others and are curious about what he wrote.
The books contains his most essential, influential essays. Each contain classical Emerson thought, unique, hard to pin down, literary Emerson was known for "trumping the logicians" and appealing to the soul of man. I have not read this book in its totality, but of the works I have, I have read thoroughly, as thoroughly as I have read perhaps anything, and I must say there is something undeniable about Emerson's reasoning.
It is not logical in the dry fashion of philosophy, yet it is poetically, "humanly" appealing. All I can say is read Emerson. He was and is one of America's most influencital writers. Some like him, some hate him, some appreciate though not totally agree with things he sets for like myself. This particular book presents a good overview of his most renowned works, is affordable, and has a nice introduction. I got this as I heard Wayne Dyer recommend it as one of his readings.
It is excellent, however, you don't sit down and read it. Maybe a page or two at a time to digest. I keep it handy and open it every other day or two for a brief interlude. It never fails to give me something wonderful to think about. You will need a good notebook to This is a gift to yourself. It is an amazing read.
