In their sequel to the popular “How to Get a Life, Vol. I,” college professors Lawrence Baines and Daniel McBrayer are back, this time offering up more thought-provoking morsels from some of the world’s greatest minds.

“How to Get a Life: Empowering Wisdom from Thinkers and Writers” takes the reader beyond history to describe how some remarkable men and women made their indisputable marks on the world.

Written in the biological sketch format made popular by “How to Get a Life, Vo. I,” each notable subject gives compelling advice on how to conquer adversity and achieve greatness with courage, tenacity and focus.

The easy-to-follow lineup features insights into the art of living from 15 magnificent lives - Plato, Aristotle, William Shakespeare, John Locke, Thomas Jefferson, Ralph Waldo Emerson, J.D. Salinger, Marcus Aurelius, Mihaly Csisksznetmihalyi, Walt Disney, Laura Esquivel, Eudora Welty, Colin Powell, Conan Doyle, and Catharine Sedgwick.
