This and many other great essays are included in Thoughts of a Philosophical Fighter Pilot [0] which would probably be my "pick one for a desert island" book.

I read this a while ago, and while it's not a great work of literature (it rambles here and there), I still recommend it if you're interested in Stoicism.

Hah! I also notice that some famous works are, oddly enough, rambling and awkward. So much of Da Vinci's writing is petulant or boastful or both.
