You learn that virtue is the key to this and that you must find a middle ground between extremes, which is the "golden mean." Aristotle also discusses the role of reason and how it helps us make moral decisions. Ultimately, the book emphasizes that you must live an ethical and virtuous life to achieve true happiness.
