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 love the format of the short stories. Little powerful punches of highly insightful messages. I haven't found anything recently that has captured my attention so fully! I often get sidetracked by full audio books and conversational podcasts don't always captivate me. Having Seneca's short stories is such a gift :)
