    1. Wisdom from Under the Red Robe ideas and advice by a 17th century French priest politician, as understood and interpreted by a 21st century American paralegal English major 1 If your boss fucks up, tell him about it in private Or write a series of unpublished letters in which you address him, knowing your labors will go unappreciated because he will never read them.2 Too much education interferes with agriculture, soldiering, commerce, and other important jobs, and should be reserved for the few [...]

    2. Not written by Richelieu Obvious and probably could be formally disprooved Still interesting The part about defenses and military is dated and could be passed if only interested on the political content.

    4.

    5. Words of wisdom from one of the most formidable men in European history This book is a selection of Richelieu s wise advice to his monarch, Louis XIII of France.

    6. A very arbitrary writer that has well thought out sentences The sentences,however, were lengthy and were moutfuls of oration but great insights nonetheless.
