I'm proposing a lot more of this audio book.

Unlike some other audio books around here that, in other cases, simply drag and drop from different sources, this is a real audio book worth the money. It's explain enough to recognize it, but it still covers things that matter. I'm proposing a lot more of this audio book.

Life-changing Audio Book This is the actual deal.

I've struggled with social tension for so long as I can consider. I've listen endless different audio books about confidence and social abilities, and that they were most effective band-aids that in no way got to the foundation of the issue.

The nice audio audio book for stoicism

This audio book is the social anxiety bible. It isn't a few pseudo-intellectual B.S., however is certainly backed up via technological know-how.

It helps me wind down

Listening one entry a day is now part of my nightly listening after I finish evening chores and before I go to sleep. It helps me wind down and focus on what's important and what's in my control, allowing me to let go of noise and distractions from the day, I am so glad that I found this audiobook.

I believe this one is the best of the bunch.

If your interest is an abstract, armchair study of Stoic philosophy, this isn't your audiobook. If your interest is an actionable guide to improving your life, you can do no better. I've listen to several modern introductions to Stoicism and I believe this one is the best of the bunch.

Stoicism is a deep topic

I came upon this audiobook after having spent some time studying stoicism. Stoicism is a deep topic with many facets and this book does a good job of summarizing the most important aspects of stoicism.

New understanding.

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.

I would recommend this audiobook

The audiobook was recommended by a colleague of mine that was somewhat surprised that I did not know about the Stoic philosophy since I had been writing about things that seemed very similar

I found this audiobook very useful.

As someone with little background in Greek philosophy generally, but interested in the similarities of Stoicism with the Buddhist lojong (mind training) tradition, I found this book very useful

You will not be disappointed.

The Obstacle Is The Way and I recommend this little book wholeheartedly. I've been listening it every day and find it to be one of the best "self-improvement" books I have found. You will not be disappointed.
