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 !!

The stoicism lifestyle.

I believe this is one of the good audiobooks out there to start especially if you have zero knowledge on stoicism. The stoicism lifestyle has the necessary principles to endure any ordeals.

It isn't hard to appreciate this kind.

I'm seeking to explore Buddhism more deeply as my partner and I am interested to become a devoted one. It's an in-depth version and has revealed about Buddhism more than I've expected.

Quality first before quantity.

The stoicism guide that cut to the chase. I'm commending it for its quality rather than quantity which most books possess.
