Great Intro to Stoicism

Dr. Richard does an excellent job arguing in favor of adopting a stoic philosophy and having a "philosophy of life." My only criticism of the book is his attack on Psychology and grief counseling as he tends to distort the benefits of the work done by good grief counselors as well as the need for them.

I like it!

This audio book interweaves analysis of the ancient texts with modern psychology and science. The wisdom of the Stoics has been supported by research time and time again. After listing this audio book, you will both be capable of writing a credible college essay on Stoic philosophy and also have many concrete, useful techniques that you can practice in your life right away.

interesting topic

stoicism is such an interesting topic to learn. I was fascinated how stoicism enormous potential helps to live a better life. This book teaches us what a good life really means. It also gives us knowledge and ability to distinguish between what is true and false.

Helpful phylosophy for me.

I am fascinated by the philosophy of stoicism. Through this audio book, I learned the history of the emergence of this doctrine, the basic concepts of stoicism. The information about cosmology and theology of stoicism was interesting and informative for me

You will reveal the secret

Stoicism arose from a philosophy to becoming way of life, similar to religion. This philosophical trend has passed through thousands of years, and even today the Stoics doctrine continues to be relevant. The main goal of ancient Stoicism was to find the best and optimal way of life that would ensure a comfortable existence for everyone.

Brilliant interpretation and concepts

Well-written, and manages to pull in quite a bit that you haven't heard even if you've listen a lot of Stoic material.pulls in his background in CBT/REBT for a wonderful modernized approach.

A Fantastic Introduction

As someone who is a big fan of Stoicism, I found this audio book to be extremely refreshing. A few years back I was introduced to accidentally (Found wandering through the bookstore) and I can honestly say,

Far more than a self-help audio book

There are a lot of books out there on Stoicism. This one breaks from the traditional format by interweaving narrative from the life of which better helps the reader understand the life and timed of the Emperor, his writings, and how Stoic wisdom can be applied to modern life.

Awesome book

Awesome book, I'm six months into it, and it really helps set my attitude positively before I start the day. Would recommend to any practicing Stoic, or anyone interested in Stoicism. For a beginner, it is really digestible.

Good daily listen

This is a daily book on stoicism. Each month has an overarching topic with which each day of the month builds on. The listening for the day starts with a quote from one of the stoics and then the rest of the quotes discusses the listening and how to use Stoic philosophy to apply it to one's own life.

Great book

Great book. After the first few minites, it is set up for daily listenings. One quotes each day, from the minds of the great stoics, the author's interpretation to align them with current times.

Really well written.

Really well written... Great, brief quotes of wisdom... an excellent book to listen to start your day with wisdom. It includes both Stoicism writing and a brief interpretation on the Stoic quotes. I really really enjoy it and am getting a ton out of it!

This book is invaluable to me

This book is invaluable to me. I listen to it every morning over my coffee. It has seeped stoicism into my bloodstream and now I am introducing others to stoicism using this daily meditation. It not only gives you a quote from a great stoic but then in Richard Avant's beautiful words, applies to an everyday situation. It is the only book I open every single day.

Each month has a theme

Each chapter of the book consists of a stoic thought. It is a short quotes pulled from stoic quotes followed by a short discussion about the ideas. Each month has a theme.

I have listen to overall books in the last 18 months. All of Richard Avant.s books are must listens. What I love about the Daily Stoic quotes is that it is not only a book, but a daily road map to help one live a virtuous life on a daily basis. Do yourself a favor purchase this book. It will change your life.
