Annoying Reading Voice

Stopped it before halfway because I couldn't stand the annoying reader's voice.
The book tended to enter into the realm of the typical 'motivational' genre instead of what I expected.

Great book, terrible, terrible reading

This sounds kind of bad to say, but directly pertains to you enjoying this audiobook, so here goes:

This man should not be narrating books, at least to anyone outside of Y12 / Tutoring. If you want to struggle through someone trying to directly read off of a page as if you're back in high school, (including yawning, "mouthy noises", etc) you'll enjoy this edition. Personally it drove me nuts having to struggle through the read, with things like a sentence ending "early" having a weird cadence or flow, and the constant feeling that a middle school teachers assistant was reading this to me (me being a small child in this case). Long story short, while I don't think being a narrator is easy, its certainly hard for my man on this one, enthusiasm aside.

The book is amazing however, and may or may not cause some deep realizations on how you navigate/live life. Personally I recommend consuming this the ol' fashioned way, or finding a better audio version.

Very Helpful Book...!

There was so much info packed into this quick listen. Theory, practice & guidance. Perfect for a noob Stoic like myself. The best section for me was the 'hands-on' section, titled "Preparing Practices". This is where you learn the steps, ideas and practices used to achieve to your transformation. These are basically short exercises or lines of thought that will help to begin to lead you along your way

Recommended

However, that was only a minor nuisance compared to the overall text and the quality job it did in outlining stoic philosophy. I did find the self examination sections at the beginning of each chapter to be excellent lead ins for the listening. I would highly recommend this audio book to anyone who has experience with stoic philosophy or someone who is just introducing themselves to one of the most profound schools of the ancient world.

Appreciating

This is easily my favorite modern audio book on Stoicism to date. I loved the scholarly and precise language which was so clear but not condescending or pedantic. You could feel the author's enthusiasm and dedication to his subject matter ooze out of each page. It was written just at my level, a fervent beginner who wanted to grasp the real intent behind Stoicism. This is an in-depth introduction that will leave you with a solid foundation which you can then use to continue your pursuit of understanding the Stoic ideals.

Stoicism is an old philosophy that needs to r

This audio book was given to me at a conference by a friend, and unfortunately I damaged it so I bought a copy on Amazon. It was well worth it but I do wish I bought a physical copy so that I could pass it on.

Excellent on this

The audio book is written as a historical document outlining the birth of stoicism and its practice in Western culture, while at the same time, teaching the tenants of its philosophy in clear, everyday English. If you are looking for a new way to look at the world, this book may just be the answer for you

Supper audio book

This audio book was given to me at a gathering by a companion, and tragically I harmed it so I purchased a duplicate on Amazon. It was well justified, despite all the trouble yet I do wish I purchased a physical duplicate with the goal that I could pass it on

Not for me

Poorly written. Badly narrated. It's supposed to be about stoicism but goes on at length about Brexit

Extraordinary book

I purchased the book recording. Extraordinary portrayal. Irvine's book was actually what I was searching for: present-day use of aloof way of thinking, ways it varies from indulgence and wariness, how stoics accommodate aspiration, sadness, delight, and inconvenience.
