Publisher's Summary

The Tao of Seneca (volumes 1-3) is an introduction to Stoic philosophy through the words of Seneca. If you study Seneca, you'll be in good company. He was popular with the educated elite of the Greco-Roman Empire, but Thomas Jefferson also had Seneca on his bedside table. Thought leaders in Silicon Valley tout the benefits of Stoicism, and NFL management, coaches, and players alike - from teams such as the Patriots and Seahawks - have embraced it because the principles make them better competitors. Stoicism is a no-nonsense philosophical system designed to produce dramatic real-world effects. Think of it as an ideal operating system for thriving in high-stress environments. This is your guide.

Wise words, over my head

I probably retained 10 percent of this, it that alone makes it worth it! It’s easy to zone out. On a future read, I will take a different approach. One letter per day, full attention. That’s the nice part of owning the book now, I can always come back.

Grounding and Timeless Content

Would you listen to The Tao of Seneca again? Why?

Yes, I listen to a few minutes of Seneca or Marcus Aureleus each morning while out walking and having coffee - a great way to start each day with 5-15 minutes of listening to one of the great Stoics. I suggest nibbling away at the Tao of Seneca (1-3) mixed in with your other books as its a bit heavy to listen to straight through.

practical and useful

Very good and unique. Filled with practical, useful wisdom. Highly recomended.
However, a few of the letters were filled with a bit to much irrelevant writings is my opinion. perhaps it did serve well although by setting one up for the coming messanges.
in any case, definetly worth your time.
Thank you Tim!

The PDF is free from his website.

I bought the audio book as a proxy to pay for this valuable work. It's a great read.

Good topic ruined by an awful narrator

The narrator for this book was absolutely terrible. It didn't even feel like he was reading in sentences.

example: Its like. he is just. pronouncing words. as they. appear. in front of him.

Poor narration, it sounds very forced/put on

Poor narration, it sounds very forced/put on, as if it is a young person trying to sound old/dignified. Get the James Cameron Stewart version of Seneca's timeless works
