This is a book of observations of how humans actually behave and what they aspire to be. I kept being surprised at how intuitive it was but how I had never thought about a lot of these ideas. Adam Smith digs into virtue, the four cardinal virtues, happiness, vice, and sentiments. One key idea was that we do and should align our behavior to an impartial spectator. What would this impartial spectator think of what I am about to do? I really enjoyed reading this book.
