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.

Outstanding messages that stand the test of time. But it seems a little more time in preparation would have helped the sound quality. It's such a silly thing to be upset about, get over it people, if you learned anything in this book it wouldn't bother you. I would give it a 4.79 stars if I could, just because I am not a perfect stoic.
