The Tao of Seneca (volumes 1-3) is an introduction to Stoic philosophy through the words of Seneca. If you study Seneca, you'll be in good company. He was popular with the educated elite of the Greco-Roman Empire, but Thomas Jefferson also had Seneca on his bedside table. Thought leaders in Silicon Valley tout the benefits of Stoicism, and NFL management, coaches, and players alike - from teams such as the Patriots and Seahawks - have embraced it.

I recently bought this and I'm really enjoying the work. Not only because of the content, but also the way its set up. You can easily listen to a chapter of this book whenever you Find 10 minutes.

What would make it even better was if the chapters had titles. F.e. 'Chapter 1: Saving time' instead of chapter 1. There are a lot of chapters and I like relisten some of them. Its easier to navigate the book this way imho.
