Good five star !!!!

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. But this book gives a detailed explanation on everything revolving around stoicism. Through easy, detailed paragraphs, the authors breaks down the study of stoicism how it applies to our life, and the history of the subject and how ancient philosophers studied it. The book does give an excellent concise definition and explanation. Overall, I think this is a great purchase as an overview into a philosophy that is worth as much consideration today as it did in the midst of the forum’s of old.

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.

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...Recommended one!!!

Well done

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.
