Publisher's Summary

We worry about how to lead a good life whenever we worry about what to eat, how to love, or just how to be happy. 

There's no more elusive goal. Stoicism is the best way to achieve it, the ancient philosophy that inspired the great emperor Marcus Aurelius. Stoicism is a pragmatic philosophy that focuses our attention on what's possible and gives us insight into what's unimportant. We can learn to answer crucial questions by understanding the philosophy: 

  • Should we get married or divorced?
  • In a world that is almost destroyed by a financial crisis, how should we handle our money?
  • How can we survive a great tragedy of our own?
     

Whoever we are, Stoicism has something for us - and the essential guide is Stoicism as a Way of Life. We can all benefit from being immune to the negative and vicissitudes of life in this way. Our modern life is so full of worries and insecurities, and peace and fulfillment are things that most people are trying to find outside themselves. Stoicism teaches that these are things that we can find only from within ourselves, and gives us the necessary tools and mind-set to build them up.

This audiobook will help you to:

  • Find the formula to improve the quality of your life.
  • Try inspiration by the real-life situation studied in the book.
  • Find out when and where this philosophy started.
  • Discover the deep path to happiness.
  • Uncover the secret formula of powerful people of the past. Find your deep path to happiness.

Perfect summary of Stoicism

I'm relatively new to Stoicism, having studied it casually the last year. Jack Poe's book is a wonderful boon, summarizing ideas and concepts I've seen from the ancient philosophers. He writes clearly and to the point. The narration was perfect for the content. I highly recommend this book. If you want to gain a better understanding of Stoicism, this book is well worth the listen!
