Best book ever!!!

The author acquaints us with the teachings of the great philosophers of antiquity who support this doctrine and gives the instruction to analyze their mistakes, control their negative thoughts and bring good to people, sincerely helping them. I recommend this book, as it teaches good and is also relevant in our turbulent times.

I like the idea of stoicism

The apologists of this system believed that it was necessary to take obstacles that are encountered on the path of life, and not to run away from them. What I like most about stoicism is the idea that that every day is a chance to make yourself better, learn something new

All you need to get started

They seek for peace and happiness only to end up in despair. Although the world can change, the human mind and nature remain the same. I hope you all understood about the book and be able to buy the book.

Good five star

Stoicism is a school of Hellenistic philosophy. It was founded by Zeno of Citium in Athens way back in the third century BC. The key figures in Stoicism are Epictetus, Seneca, and Marcus Aurelius. To the Stoics, one's behavior or actions matter more than what one says. Stoicism teaches that virtue is needed to attain happiness, and that judgment should be based upon actions. Another interesting insight of Stoicism is to recognize and accept that there are external events that are simply outside of your control, and the best way to deal with them is simply to control yourself and your responses.

New information

The book is written as a historical document outlining the birth of stoicism and its practice in Western culture, while at the same time, teaching the tenants of its philosophy in clear, everyday English. If you are looking for a new way to look at the world, this book may just be the answer for you

Just recommend it.

Where the moral values are very low and people's priorities is to earn more money and to live in whatever ways. In this book,the content will teach us how to live righteous with no touch of hypocricy. I really admire the Stoic philosophy.
