Why have history's greatest minds - from George Washington to Frederick the Great to Ralph Waldo Emerson along with today's top performers, from Super Bowl-winning football coaches to CEOs and celebrities - embraced the wisdom of the ancient Stoics? Because they realize that the most valuable wisdom is timeless and that philosophy is for living a better life, not a classroom exercise. The Daily Stoic offers a daily devotional of Stoic insights and exercises, featuring all-new translations.

Would you try another book from Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman and/or Brian Holsopple?

I really like Ryan Holiday so I found this book to be a great appointment. My expectations were that it would provide a daily reading that would provoke thought and inspiration. In addition, they voice was not engaging for me.

Has The Daily Stoic turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I just feel it like intimacy and energy.
