Publisher's Summary

“How long are you going to wait before you demand the best for yourself?” (Epictetus, Stoic philosopher)

Where can you find joy? Gain strength? How should we face our fears? Deal with the death of a loved one? And what about those reoccurring depressing thoughts?

While traditional schooling doesn’t address such questions, it’s exactly what ancient schools of philosophy were all about: They taught you how to live. Even though these schools don’t exist anymore, you and I and most people are in as much need of a philosophy that guides us through life as we ever were.

This compelling, highly actionable guide shows you how to deal more effectively with whatever life throws at you and live up to your best self.

A mix of timeless wisdom and empowering advice, The Little Book of Stoicism will point the way to anyone seeking a calm and wise life in a chaotic world.

Written by a 20 something year old and it shows

Lots of fluff, not a lot of insight. Would not recommend, don't blame the author he's just experienced.

Noticeable Improvement

I started this book in December and by the end of the month my wife told me she’d noticed an improvement in my demeanor, especially my patience with the kids. I hadn’t told her I was reading it either. Now that I’m done, I think I’ll keep re-reading!

Great practical wisdom on Stoicism!

Simply amazing. Timeless wisdom and articulate narration. Ancient Stoicism texts can be dull and hard to digest. The author does a wonderful job interpreting lessons and advice from these amazing Stoic philosophers. Easy to digest with plenty of practical examples. This is a book to not only learn the basics but apply them in everyday life. Stoic practitioners aren't just keyboard warriors but warriors philosophers. To practice Stoicism is not just reading about it, it's also about practicing, training and embodying the Stoic values. It teaches you to live well and also die well. I usually don't finish audio books, but I did with this one!
