Publisher's Summary

How would you feel, if after all hard work and striving for many precious years, you realize that you wasted your entire life? To avoid such repentence, the ancient yet effective philosophy of stoicism is the way to live the modern life.

You wouldn’t be the first person to explore this unique way of living, our history's greatest minds - from George Washington to Frederick the Great to Ralph Waldo Emerson, along with today's top performers, including sport coaches to CEOs and celebrities - have already embraced the wisdom of the ancient Stoics.

Stoicism is one of the most popular and successful schools of thought in ancient Rome, and shows how this ancient philosophy and its insight is still significant for living our modern day lives.

Practical Stoicism is your step-by-step essential guide to teach you this ancient yet effective philosophy to help you selectively design your life full of wisdom and joy, while persevering in the face of toughest situations and adversities. This book will teach you the great wisdom of Stoic philosophers such as such as Seneca, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius.

This book is not merely a simple explanation of the ancient philosophy. The key emphasis of the book is to give you research supported, science backed practical and actionable tips to lead a stoic life. Practical Stoicism is full of examples and life-scenarios to help you understand this philosophy better, so you can face the challenges of the world in the most practical way.

Impressive! This is a quick and enjoyable.

Impressive! This is a quick and enjoyable to listen that covers the basic tenets of Stoicism. The ideas are illustrated with modern and ancient examples of people who exemplified stoic behavior. Many of these were new to me and very interesting. Really worth recommending!
