If like me, you enjoyed “a Guide to the good life” but wanted more elaboration on the practical techniques and tools, this is for you. No fluff or BS, just practical techniques explained with good real life examples. And at around 4 hrs, so not the biggest commitment, with a good Narrator even! I will listen again!

A great introduction to stoicism

This book did an excellent job of explaining the history, principles and techniques used by stoicism without overdoing it and getting boring. It was just a great overall explanation on why one may want to adopt a philosophy of life, and why stoicism is a great choice. To help one achieve more tranquillity and satisfaction in daily living. A great read for young professionals like myself especially. I appreciated the way the book explained the parallels and comparisons to Zen Buddhism and other philosophical positions and practices. Also the narrator was great.
