Publisher's Summary

How to live a better life. One of the most important books on Western philosophy - a powerful and inspirational guide for the complicated world of today.

Few ancient works have been as influential as the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius. Filled with wisdom, practical guidance and profound understanding of human behaviour, it remains one of the greatest works of spiritual and ethical reflection ever written. Marcus' insights and advice - on everything from living in the world to coping with adversity and interacting with others - have made the Meditations required listening for statesmen and philosophers alike, while generations of ordinary listeners have responded to the straightforward intimacy of his style.

In Gregory Hays' translation, Marcus' thoughts speak with a new immediacy. Never before have Marcus' insights been so directly and powerfully presented.

Great translation, aweful delivery.

The reader ruined this one for me. The worst reading that I have experienced in 100+ audio books. Sounds like it's being read off a phone and he's only seeing 2 words at a time.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
