Great primer on Stoicism

This is a great primer for anyone curious about Stoicism. While it’s possible to begin listening the chapters about how to practice Stoicism I would recommend also listening about the History of Stoicism.

I love Stoicism!

Life changing if you choose to embrace the Stoic philosophy. I now consider myself a novice Stoic and will read this book again and again to reinforce the principles until they are part of my natural being. Outstanding!

Introduces stoicism in an easy way

A nice collection of Stoic thinking written in a very conversational style. Generally that style isn’t what I prefer as it occasionally comes off as flippant. But if you are looking for a book to recommend on the subject that is accessible and doesn’t listen like a textbook then this is a good one.

A great look into the philosophy of Stoicism

Highly recommended book and a great look into the philosophy of Stoicism, which has helped me immensely in getting through some of the rough times in my life and also appreciating the great things which I have today. Stoicism teaches me not to focus on the things I cannot change and to accept the challenges in life, because most of the time these experiences make us stronger.

A great source for reflection on living

I waited long for this book arrival. Although I have listen many books about Stoic philosophy before this is a refreshing view. I have enjoyed work before, both his books and online courses, but this one is definitely outstanding.

Mostly excellent

Mostly excellent, very well-written and a good contextualization of Meditations. I only dropped one star due to the repetitive nature of some parts, almost as if the author were trying to stretch the book out. Still, well worth a read especially if you're interested in learning more about Stoic philosophy.

A dose of tranquility

This book is great because it offers actual suggestions of things to do to practice stoicism. My only frustration is that it starts to get a bit repetitive. Full disclosure, I skipped the second part about the history of Stoicism because I was really after the advice for living. I may go back and listen that part... someday!!!!

Puts meat on stoic bones

This is a wonderful audio book that gets to the muscle and sinew of Stoicism by examining the life of one of its sages. While I have struggled with other good books on Stoicism, I have learned so much in reading “How to Think Like A Roman Emperor”. And, it is really hard to put down. In a word, it is fabulous.

Life changing

I like self-help books, and the little I knew about Stoicism intrigued me. This book is an easy listen and makes Stoicism seem practical for modern times. I found many policies here that I am applying to my own life with great success. If you like learning about philosophies and using them for your emotional health, this is a good one. I'm very glad I bought this.

Stoicism for the modern age

This was a great book. This is an excellent book I've recommended to friends. The writer does an excellent job detailing the basis for Stoic philosophy, all the while giving the reader examples of how to implement these techniques for contemporary everyday life.
