This is an important classic text. The author of this book is Venerable Bhadantacariya Buddhaghosa. This English version was translated from the Pali by Venerable Bhikkhu Ñāṇamoli.http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... on2011.pdf
Many thanks to the BPS editors, Mr. John Bullitt of Access to Insight, and other people for their efforts making this version available

What is the use of his knowledge
pertaining to the number of insects in the whole world?
Rather, inquire into his knowledge of
that which is to be practised by us
This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.
SN I, 38.
Níl sa saol seo ach ceo
There is naught in this life but mist
Is ní bheimid beo ach seal beag gearr.
And we will not be alive but a short hard time.
