Cicero Books is a publishing company dedicated to quality books, fair prices and faculty support. Textbooks are expensive because the business model followed by large publishers works well for books that sell in the tens of thousands of copies, but is not appropriate for niche textbooks that sell fewer than 5, copies a year. Cicero is in agreement, rather, with the Stoics, Academics, and Peripatetics in asserting that "it is in the obvervance of duty that lies all the honor of life, in its neglect all the shame." In this treatise Cicero says he will follow the arguments of the Stoics for this essay.
