Great listen!

Excellent, informative, and useful read into "how to live a good life". I've long been interested in Stoic philosophy, and this book goes in depth into the ideas, how and why they're useful, and how to apply them.
The practices are great !! This is one of those audible books worth re-reading every couple of years to remind ourselves how to think and live a good life.

Nice voice for listening

The concept and practice of Stoicism are new to me and this book lays it out in a way that is understandable and useful. A variation on the title might be "Stoicism".

The part I found most helpful are the exercises that help you practice the philosophy to improve your life. I am feeling happy to listen. I recommend listening to it by doing it through the use of these exercises. Great audible book

LISTEN TO IT !!

A Great Introduction to Stoicism!

I have been interested in Stoicism for a few years. I have even applied some of the philosophy to guide my life. However, learning and applying the concepts seemed very tedious. This book breaks down the concepts in a way that make them very easy to understand and remember. This allows me more time to actually apply Stoicism in my life. I am so glad I bought this book.

Life changing book

I've listen many books but this book changed my life and shaped my approach to living. I had been using my own similar techniques and inadvertently practicing Stoicism for most of my life. The new tools this showed me will make life even more enjoyable.

Excellent book for people who enjoy philosophy

This book goes through a detailed breakdown history of Stoicism, which if you are curious is an ancient Greek teaching that values having the knowledge and enduring pain and hardships with harmony. This philosophy resembles Taoism, but they both have been derived out of different cultures, so if you know the teaching of Taoism, then you may be interested in reading this to compare and contrast.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading something that will help grow your own opinions about how you see the world and react. You don't have to take on the Stoicism philosophy after reading, but instead, you can learn to appreciate the deeper thoughts on life and see things a little differently.

A Great Philosophical Literary Experience

A fascinating read which adapts the philosophy, tenants, brief history, and values of Stoicism from a weighty and perhaps often a very terrifyingly academic venture into a very manageable, easily relatable, and overall enjoyable literary experience for the philosopher and layman alike.

Detailed Informative Useful Book

This book had a lot of good information to share. I learned about stoicism, its history, and what makes it so important. It is a way of living based on ancient philosophy principles. The book explains how this way of living helps you control your emotions, be a better person, and live a better life. It was a great read.

it is an old philosophy that needs to reemerge

This book was given to me at a conference by a friend, and unfortunately, I damaged it so I bought a copy on Amazon. It was well worth it but I do wish I bought a physical copy so that I could pass it on..

An informative history on stoicism

I've always been fascinated with philosophy. Anything with the various types of philosophy and famous philosophers has garnered my attention. Stoicism is an area of philosophy that many readers may not know about. so you need to listen to it now.
