"Thoughtful advice. . . . How to Give is as much about receiving as it is about giving."---John J. Miller, National Review
"[Romm] is very helpful in his introduction . . . [and his] short summations show a clear mastery of his material."---Ray Morris, Classics for All
"This new translation of Seneca the Younger's De Beneficiis has insights for both givers and receivers, confirming that the questions surrounding philanthropy-and how to receive as well as to give graciously-are of enduring importance."---Austin Detwiler, Philanthropy Daily
"Engaging. . . . [Seneca] has seldom seemed wiser."---Steven Donoghue, Open Letters
"In a helpful running commentary that accompanies his vigorous translation, [James] Romm glosses Seneca to mean that the best gifts are given anonymously and received gratefully. . . . For the stoically inclined, a fine vade mecum come donation time." * Kirkus Reviews *
