Summary

Self-Reliance, an essay written by Ralph Waldo Emerson in 1841, is arguable Emerson's most influential piece. Self-Reliance does a masterful job expanding on one of Emerson's most frequently spoken themes of how individuals should follow their own ideas and instincts. The essay has three major divisions: the importance of self-reliance, self-reliance and the individual, and self-reliance and society, each containing timeless teachings. Self-Reliance was not only remarkable for its time but continues to influence society with its wisdom. Emerson, who is seen as the champion of Individualism, will leave listeners with lifelong inspiration on some of the most important ideals of being human.

A fast read

With a book so deep, the narration was a bit fast, but articulate nonetheless. Good.
