Too many mistakes

The content is repetitive and cyclical, the writing has grammatical errors that tarnish the intellectualism of the content, and the narrator has a noticeable and slightly distracting drawl.
It feels like listening to a tipsy university student recount the Stoicism chapter of his Philosophy 101 course from last year.

For a better read, try "Stoicism: A Stoic Approach to Modern Life" by Tom Miles.

brilliant guide

The book gives a perfect introduction to Stoicism and how to make Stoicism work for maximum benefit. There is a lot to learn from this book, you will learn some parts of philosophy, understanding human emotions and freewill. I now understand affirmations as more of a way to prepare future responses to trying situations.

must listen

This book captures the practical wisdom of Stoicism that gives us tools for tranquillity and purpose. The insights are similar to those in Buddhism but without Eastern mythological trappings. The insights are also echoed in Christianity which was directly influenced by Stoicism. Many people today join sects and cults to achieve some measure of emotional healing. Stoicism can do the same without so much esoteric nonsense.

awesome

The author does a great job of introducing various Stoic concepts and how Stoic philosophers I interpreted these concepts, but I was not a fan of how the book was explained as it felt like listening a history textbook

great book

It is a great book, but do not expect a sudden relevation; if its yours first book in the subject, probably you will be disapointed, also if you have too much about it, is a great book if you are use to take principles and apply those to your life
