Publisher's Summary

Let's face it, we can't control every aspect of our lives, and the fact is a lot of things we stress about are out of our direct control.

The ancient philosophy of Stoicism still stands the test of time and is still practiced in society today all over the world. This is the art of living in true happiness, as stoic principles guide us to live in harmony and flow with life's many challenges.

Many times we are taught and encouraged to take more of an aggressive and combative stance towards life's difficulties; however, in this guide to stoic mastery, you will learn how to overcome tribulation through virtue, controlling your emotions, endurance, mindfulness, and affirmations.

The stoic way of life can be compared to that of water; the very nature of water entails the state of being fluid, flexible, dynamic, and contains a property of flow, not causing discord but creating perfect harmony. Water doesn't try to shift, force, or demand itself among its surroundings but, on the contrary, aligns itself in harmony with nature. 

What you'll learn in part one:

  • What is Stoicism
  • Understanding your emotions
  • Staying calm in the midst of tribulation
  • Flowing like water within your surroundings
  • How to become happy regardless of your situation
  • Learning how to re-frame your mind and make the best of your circumstances

There's more....

What you'll learn in part two:

  • Recognizing the things you can control
  • Practicing gratitude in our lives 
  • Learning how to be virtuous
  • How to practice some mindfulness
  • How to be patient
  • Finding inner peace within yourself without being effected

good book for beginner

It is a great book, but do not expect a sudden relevation; if its yours first book in the subject, probably you will be disapointed, also if you have read too much about it, is a great book if you are use to take principles and apply those to your life.

enlightening

I found this book satisfying, not displeasing, and quite profitable for contemplation of wisdom and virtue. I have used the psychological exercises in the book and experienced greater tranquility and equanimity in adversity. I've accomplished a lot in my life recently with the aid of stoicism, and plan to the original texts next. I HIGHLY recommend this book!

Superficial

What disappointed you about Stoicism: Introduction to the Stoic Way of Life?

Very repetitive, "dumbed down" & unenlightening. The subject was reduced to a series of slogans and trite expressions, which didn't do justice to the important philosophical traditions of stoicism.

What could Jason Gale have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Given more respect to the intelligence of his readers/listeners. This was the made-for-TV version of serious philosophical movement.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Narrator was fine.

awesome

I found myself highlighting something almost every page. It took me a few years to read. There is much to contemplate and practice, but even as a beginner it has brought increased peace to my life.

nice book

I heard this topic on my Philosophy class when I was in college, and I honestly didn't get the whole concept of it. listening this book made me understand stoicism more and how it can affect your daily life greatly. It's more of a topic that involves self-control, which is very helpful to most people nowadays. With this book I'm not only able to know more about this philosophy but also learn how to adopt it. I'm learning more about my emotions and reality. Nice book

wow,excellent

Since this is another book for me I am truly reluctant on perusing this one yet on account of my companion who suggested me this book since it got my consideration. I now comprehend what is the genuine significance of stoicism. I am extremely cheerful in light of the fact that I would now be able to apply those things that i have learnt in this book at this moment. the time has come to share this to my companions.
