Aristotle's Rhetoric is not unduly long. Why not nominate the whole book?
I guessed Plato... Close.

Hi, heroic Norse woman!

Do you just just read (meaning looking at the pictures) about the art of French cooking or you carry on all the assignments?

The "old stuff" I am thinking about is translated in English and we have it on MR. And it is much easier to read than the ancient Greek stuff you were promoting before. Let me give you an excerpt.
And whats wrong with Aristofanes?

As for the cookbook its an oldfashioned one without photos. I actually *gasp* read it Well, I read the general information sections and skim the recipes. you should look up Julia Child on Wikipedia

Especially given that Platons Symposion is the only thing I know well of the classical literature...

Nothing wrong with Aristophanes, nothing at all.

I have a Julia Child cook book and I use it. I even used to watch her show on TV. I am that old. I would like to have the NYTime cook book by her, but I cannot find it anymore. My NY fiancée had it. She was excellent with pots and pans and referred to JC book all the time.

If you have time or inclination for it, do read the rhetoric. You can download it from MR or just buy a pocket book. I kept a cheap copy in my rucksack for years. Actually in French. It is very profound without being religious (which would mix in irrational). It has the purpose of training a lawyer or a politician to convince other people or to win a cause, and myself, I do not care at all for these things. In order to do so, among other things, he examines the emotive motors of our opinions ... There are many other things in the book. But just this part makes it a masterpiece, so actual, even if conceived 2300 years ago. They are the first chapters of the second book.

Great suggestion! I just downloaded the edition that Patricia uploaded. My only previous reading of Aristotle's works was his Ethics.

Well, you're a very ethical guy in any case.

And I thank you though I've yet to completely read Spinoza's Ethics.

Went to MobileRead > E-Books > Mobi/PRC Books > A > page 7 > Aristotle: Rhetoric, v.1. 27 Jan 2008.

Here's the link for the mobi file, but there are probably several other formats available:
