Read this free excerpt from the audiobook:

"Humans have a bad habit of putting their emotional thoughts ahead of logical thinking. Part of being a good Stoic is thoroughly processing your emotions, but choosing to act logically. Being able to operate in total fairness is a virtue that is severely lacking in this world. A true Stoic works completely within the laws of nature and the idea of going against that for personal gain and emotional status will only lead to problems down the line. Acting selfishly is human nature, but it is this trait that often derails us.

"Being unbiased in your thinking gives you the ability to objectively see all of the possibilities presented to you. People who take only a possible solution to a problem into consideration, ignoring personal feelings toward the issue, or toward the person who is supplying the idea means, make the best decisions."

Stoicism is essential for modern life

This book s a great, short read on the value of Stoic thought. The ability to control your emotions, rather than let them control you, is absolutely invaluable to the modern world.

This book is only an hour long, but it imparts a great deal of material in that brief time. Highly recommended.

A great overview and practical advice

A great overview and practical advice

I had no understanding of the intricate history of stoicism and came in only knowing I had, on occasion, been labelled as stoic. This short audio was a great way to learn more about this fascinating theory.

The book often references Seneca and his “Letters From a Stoic” which piqued my attention.

This book begins with a list of things that can be accomplished by embracing stoicism including (but not limited to):
- Train and control our emotions
- Get rid of anger and negativity
- Being able to view things neutrally and choose logical reaction, not emotional

All those things appeal to me as I can be very emotional. Sometimes to my own detriment. Interestingly, there was the suggestion that free will is just an illusion and we are all part of a big plan. In other words, we are fated to live the lives we do. I’m not sold on that.

I did embrace the notion that if we cannot accept ‘what is’, we will be angry and depressed. We can’t all be billionaires, but we can embrace the positive aspects in our lives. There are also suggestions on how to become an unbiased thinker and how important self-control is.

I would recommend this audio for anyone with an interest in stoicism as well as anyone who often reacts irrationally to situations and might want to find another way. We may not be operating in total fairness right now, but it is something to aspire to.

Lee Adams is a great narrator and his calm voice was welcoming. He spoke clearly but had enough inflection so the narration was never dull.

A great listen.

Reflective

Thought provoking. Too many times do I personally blame others, automatically even though I intend not to do so. Always retraining my brain to not blame. Stoicism can be applied to many areas. I do not believe there is a need for work/life balance. I believe it's a need to understand how to have both work together to provide health and objectivity in general.

Useful Intro To Stoicism

If you want a primer into how Stoicism could benefit your life - this is it. Short, sharp and to the point. You probably don't want to spend 20+ hours on this school of thought until you at least have a taste of it. So, give this a go first. Leigh Adams' narration is solid and Geoffrey Loren has a good grip of the subject matter. Please note: I asked for and received a copy of this for review. That doesn't change the way that I feel about it.

Great Lecture on Stoicism

Stoicism: Apply Stoicism to Your Everyday Life and Overcome Destructive Emotions Quick History of Stoicism, Learn Unbiased Thinking and Improve Your Life is written by Geoffrey Loren and narrated by Leigh Adams. I really enjoyed this audiobook. This is a great tool for anyone dealing with the stress of daily living to add to their mental health toolbox along with mindfulness as they go hand in hand. That said this is not something that can be learned overnight. The principles and techniques are something that needs to be worked on overtime. The author used women in examples as the overly emotional types in several examples. Some make take offense to this or be bothered by this fact. Men and women react differently. This is neither good nor bad just how the species is wired. The principles of Stoicism can help both men and women if both are open to the fact and self-aware that they need to overcome self-destructive emotions.

The narration by Leigh Adams was very enjoyable. This was the first audio performance that I have heard from Mr. Adams. It was like listening to a professional lecturer or a keynote speaker at a symposium on this subject. The production quality of this audiobook is also topnotch. I heard no problems during the entire performance. There were not any detectable flaws that I was able to hear during the entire performance. I did not hear any loops, breaks, or buzzing. The production was crisp and clear. Geoffrey Loren delivered an excellent audiobook production. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

An Interesting Listen but Still Unclear Somewhat

I thought I knew what stoicism was but was unsure. What I think is it means something like being calm and controlling ones emotions. Maybe it can be compared to the phrase calm, cool, and collected.

This audiobook was full of good information and ways that stoicism would apply. I'll be listening to it again I meditate and this is something I think would work as a practicing tool to work on as well. It left me with a lot to think about.

Leigh Adams is a terrific narrator. Listening to him makes the book easier to understand.

An Introduction to Stoicism

“Stoicism” is a beginner’s guide to stoic history and philosophy, to help you let go of negative emotions and think more logically.

I became interested in Stoicism when it was discussed by Alun Cochrane on The Frank Skinner Show Podcast, but didn’t really know much about the history or techniques beyond its association with the ‘Stiff Upper Lip’. It has been really interesting to gain a better understanding of it as a defined practice.

I found the egalitarian aspect particularly compelling, as I had not associated that with Stoicism before.

As someone who struggles with anxiety and emotional ‘overthinking’, I was interested in whether Stoicism could help me recognise that negativity and rationalise it more adeptly. This book provided me with a good introduction, but little in the way of practical advice to take forward. I didn’t enjoy the ‘scenarios’ that were explored to demonstrate stoic/emotional thinking and behaviours, and would have preferred more information on how to incorporate Stoicism into traditional mindfulness.

Leigh Adams’ narration suits the subject very well, as his voice is authoritative enough to give me more confidence in the material, but also soothing enough to feel comfortable in this ‘self-help’ setting, where it’s important to relax and imagine letting go of unhelpful emotions. If his performance were too excitable then it wouldn’t work for this subject, so his languorous style works well. I’d really like to hear him narrate a book more directly dedicated to Mindfulness or Guided Meditation. I listen to these daily and think his voice would really suit that kind of audiobook.

I’d recommend this book to people like myself, who struggle with overthinking, or anyone who finds that they hold on to anger or jealousy far too long. It may not be as suitable for staunch Atheists or those with devout religious leanings, who might not be able to reconcile Stoic Theology with their own beliefs (or lack thereof). If you can set aside the historic Theology and origins of Stoicism and focus on the practical techniques then it is still useful, as the theology is only one small aspect. It’s a useful guide for anyone who isn’t familiar with the subject and is prepared to do further reading.
