This is a fantastic introduction to Stoicism

This is a fantastic introduction to Stoicism for the modern world. The author is extremely clear and in my case, it was almost as he was anticipating the critical ideas that popped in my mind when listening . I had a mild interest in these ideas before listening this book, but my interest and the applicability of these ideas to my life have become much more apparent after listening this book!

Many books on Stoicism focus on the history

Many books on Stoicism focus on the history of the philosophy and you are expected to derive your own method/rules that you can apply to your own life. This book is focused on giving these basic principles so that you can apply it today.

Life changing if you choose to embrace the Stoic

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!
