In Praise Of Pithy: Books For Short Attention Spans

"Three Books ..." is a series in which we invite writers to recommend three great reads on a single theme.

As we get ever more pressed for time, it seems that authors take delight in burdening us with ever longer books. That's why I have always been a particular fan of authors who've written maxims, pithy brief sayings and reflections that can be gulped down in a few moments by the most impatient of travelers.
