Publisher's Summary

Here is the secret: Your happiness is entirely up to you. You can be happy no matter what happens to you and no matter what material things you have. Everything important is under your control.

Sound silly? That’s why you need this audiobook. The philosophy of Stoicism has helped people for thousands of years and is one of the bases for several modern techniques of psychology, such as CBT. It teaches us how to understand our place in the world and concrete techniques for making us better. 

This audiobook will go through the philosophy of Stoicism from A to Z. We will learn about what the good life means and how to achieve it. We will talk about ways to develop self-control and specific practices that can help you gain peace and tranquility. 

Most people spend their life being buffeted by outside forces, shaken about by emotions and things they do not understand. Stoicism will help you gain the foundation that allows you to avoid being unsettled by outside things. We will learn how to tell the difference between things that are up to us and things that are not and learn to let go of things we cannot control.

  • Fight your damaging emotions and learn to gain peace and tranquility regardless of what happens to you.
  • Understand what it means to live a good life and how you can recognize what good things you already have.
  • Learn what it is to be “virtuous” and how you can be a better person each and every day.
  • Develop a habit of self-control that can help you conquer any obstacle in your path. 
  • Study logic and gain an understanding of what is within our ability to know. 
  • Find peace and tranquility in your life, no matter what happens. 
  • Stoicism has brought happiness and flourishing to countless people, from Roman emperors to slaves. It can bring happiness to you, too.

Some miracle cures promise that they can make your life better with three easy steps or a simple change in diet. This isn’t that. The only person that can make your life better is you, and this audiobook will help you see the way. 

Written in an accessible tone but informed by the deepest and most rigorous research, this audiobook combines a scholarly analysis of Stoic philosophy with specific tools you can use right now to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and your place in the world.

Narrator :(

Couldn’t finish audiobook & don’t plan to, narrator ruined the experience. Such a great subject, and I’m sure the book itself is wonderful, but very bad audiobook.

This book takes us on a journey starting with the beginning of stoicism and going on into its relation to cosmology, theology and psychology. It touches on the view that the world is a unity

love it


This 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.

The whole human, we are interconnected to the world, logically, in pleasure, in pain, and in discipline, one is damaged when we fail to treat one another with respect and compassion. This book was very enlightening.
