Publisher's Summary

If you are looking for a way, to maintain a sense of logic and rationality at all times and would you like to never fall into reaction to emotions, then keep reading...

Here's the deal. You have tried various methods to understand how the world around you works in order to live a fair life with safety and happiness, but sometimes, you still feel insecure about making important decisions. You would like to gain more awareness and wisdom to make the right decision and make your life better and happier.

If that's true, then the information inside this audiobook is your answer.

Anything that tilts the mind or sways the spirit, anything that could prejudice someone against reason, is bad. If we are to live right, then we must make ourselves aware of desire and fear as they arise and then put them away, do whatever we need to do to acknowledge them, and then prevent them from affecting our thought processes and decision making.

Stoicism provides us with the tools not only to develop inner tranquility, but also to build self-reliance, all whilst learning how to act with virtue in accordance with reason and logic. Did you know that stoicism was deliberately created to be comprehensible, logical, and beneficial?

The study of stoicism does not require an entirely new lexicon or hours of meditation. This offers an instant, useful, and practical way of finding tranquility and enhancing character strengths.

In this audiobook, you'll find information on:

  • What is stoicism
  • History of stoicism
  • Stoicism and the universe
  • Most famous stoic philosopher
  • Stoicism and happiness
  • Stoicism modern rules
  • And many more!

So, if you have read through this and want to learn more about how to live with wisdom and happiness, then simply buy this audiobook and learn more than you would have ever imagined on stoicism.

Great primer on Stoicism

This is a great primer for anyone curious about Stoicism. While it’s possible to begin listening the chapters about how to practice Stoicism I would recommend also listening about the History of Stoicism.
