Publisher's Summary

In this guidebook, you are going to learn some of the basics that are needed to follow the Stoic philosophy. This may seem like an ancient philosophy, one that you do not need to waste your time on, but it has a lot of meaning and value today. This guidebook will give you some of the basics that you need to know to add some more Stoicism into your own life.

Stoicism is basically about learning how to let go of the things that you are not able to control, such as the situations and events that occur around you, while taking control over the things that you can, such as your emotions and how you react to the situations that you cannot control. This may seem pretty basic to work with, but it is counterintuitive to what you may be used to in the past, and it will take some time to do well with it.

When you are ready to become a Stoic and reach the true happiness that this philosophy promises, make sure to check out this guidebook and learn some of the basics about how this school of thought works.

Excellent

When thinking in terms of philosophy stoicism should come to mind. It is the backbone of Greek philosophy and teaches a tangible idea that virtue the highest good is based on learned behavior. It delves into philosophy from a different point of view and teaches techniques most people are not familiar with like living a purposeful life and not conforming to most traditional practices.

I had delighted in this book Immensely

I had delighted in this book Immensely. It has an important substance for all. I'm content with this book recording and listening step by step.I strongly prescribe this book to anybody. It is different from most daily quote audiobooks because the quotes are from so long ago, but they still are almost always relevant today. Anyone can make something simple too complex but only a genius can find something complex and make it simple

Excellent

I have some minor criticism of the fact that certain sentences are awkwardly worded throughout, although this didn't hinder my understanding of the key ideas. Also, the author at times repeats himself, although that's not necessarily a bad thing as these ideas need repetition to really sink into the mind.

I was very pleasantly surprised

This book isn't quite a self-help guide, it's more of a philosophy book with tools listeners can use to unlock the keys of stoicism. I learned a great deal and I was very pleasantly surprised. It wasn't overwhelming and offered really good and really practical advice that is easy to implement.

The book captures the main themes and concepts

The book captures the main themes and concepts of Stoicism - becoming skillful at life and being the best human you can by living a virtuous life (content, joyful, resilient, able to take action), focusing on what you can control vs. things out of your control, your mind is yours and yours alone, and seeing every circumstance as an opportunity to practice virtue.

wonderful philosophies in one book

I have heard many self-help speakers and listen to many books. I had also heard a lot about Stoicism which from day one impacted me more than anything else in the past. Now coming across this book was a pleasure and a blessing in itself. The author was able to concise centuries of such wonderful philosophies in one book where he makes it easy to see it through his eyes and understand the essence of what being a stoic is all about.

I am following all the guidelines step by step and it helps me to start in the world of Stoicism. It's simply a wisdom philosophy.
