Publisher's Summary

Imagine how different your life would be if you knew how to develop the resilience to deal with tough times, whilst effortlessly getting on the path to peace of mind. Stoicism is a timeless ancient philosophy which can teach you just that. Unlike many religious and new age thinking methods, Stoic teachings provide a clear road map on exactly “How” to think, not simply “What” to think. Thus giving its practitioners a way to better deal with the misfortunes and hardships they face.

James Daugherty is an intelligence expert & former CIA Spy who specializes in all forms of human behavior. But there’s one trait which is critical to a productive life, obtaining and retaining a pragmatic and stable mindset. A spy would be worthless without it. Daugherty is a huge proponent of the Stoic philosophies, as a result of being exposed to highly stressful and testing situations over the years. A Stoic mindset is not a luxury for a field agent, but a necessity.

A fresh, practical approach to stoicism

Good, but fairly simplistic primer on Stoicism. I felt well connected and could relate to the thoughts and themes described. I relate well to how the author portrays internal conflict and lack of emotional control, areas i want to work on. This seemed a helpful start, but lacks a lot of substance and was repetitive at times. It also talks about the way of their own lives. Honesty is what makes a man stay on his job.

This book begins with a brief introduction about what stoicism is and how to recognize the things that are under our control. After reading this book I have now understand how emotions work and use it properly. But most of all I learn the importance of freedom of will.

This is effective one.the author is written very well.highly recommended

Life changing

Stoicism is an excellent practice to adopt but I would not recommend this book to learn more about it unfortunately. The writing was clunky and difficult to get through. Instead of the parody I've seen in SNL, I now understand affirmations as more of a way to prepare future responses to trying situations.

A really wonderful book to read!!,

I found an instrument for restraint.Well, This is one of the best books I have read in a long time.This book clearly explains how to live a virtuous life and stop worrying about things that you have no control over. I kept in mind the 5 principles that are derivatives of stoicism towards modern living stated in this book, very logical.

On point

Listing this book made me understand stoicism more and how it can affect your daily life greatly. It's more of a topic that involves self-control, which is very helpful to most people nowadays. With this book I'm not only able to know more about this philosophy but also learn how to adopt it. I'm learning more about my emotions and reality. Nice book

Excellent listen! I learned from this book that we should not really go against what life throws at us but rather face it with strength and endurance. Ironic as it may sound, but learning to face adversities will bring us peace and a fulfilling life. I have so many realizations after reading this book. And I hope they will help me pave the way to a better version of myself. Everyone should try listen this book!

I enjoyed listening this book

It is interesting to hear this audible because it has many strategies and effective ways to live well. It taught me how to handle problems and resolve them. I am thankful. do not think it will change my life. In what I heard, I tried to test what I learned that's why many things realized in my life. This Stoicism is a beautiful way of life.
