When you are faced with a crisis, you have two alternatives: either to begin freezing and be bewildered about what to do or to handle the problem soundly and sensibly.

What the hell was this?...

Seriously, what the hell was it?... in most part, a complete jumble of words. probably about 10% made sense the rest was incomprehensible gibberish. Surely there has to be something wrong with the transmission of this audio book. Either that or you'd have to be on something extremely hallucinogenic to make any sense of this garbage. What a waste of time

Awesome listen.

I have always been fascinated by ancient Greeks and Roman. Stoicism is one of the ancient philosophies mastered by Greeks and Romans. Life often comes to a standstill when nothing at all feels alright. It is like Goddot's, " Nobody comes and nobody goes. nothing happens". It is during those times that the things we have heard, seen or felt lift us up. The questions like, " Why are we here" and " What is the purpose of our lives have been the most difficult questions asked by generations before us.

A fascinating listen.

A fascinating listen which adapts the philosophy, tenants, brief history, and values of Stoicism from a weighty and perhaps often a very terrifyingly academic venture into a very manageable, easily relatable, and overall enjoyable literary experience for the philosopher and layman alike.

I would recommend for anyone.

While believing that moral goodness is necessary to achieve happiness is common ground, Stoicism goes deeper than that. 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. We all have everything to do with the cause and effect that brings our world to where it is today. We all have a purpose and duty to the place that we live. I have always been interested in Stoicism quotes in general and this book has a surplus of amazing faces in history contributing to that. I would recommend for anyone looking to touch upon the topic or out of mere interest. George Tanner’s imagery is beyond explanation. Can’t wait to listen to what’s next!

Very easy book.

When thinking in terms of philosophy stoicism should come to mind. It is the backbone of Greek philosophy and teaches a tangible idea that virtue the highest good is based on learned behavior. This book explores those teaching in an in-depth and practical manner. It delves into philosophy from a different point of view and teaches techniques most people are not familiar with like living a purposeful life and not conforming to most traditional practices. My favorite chapter was the one on Apatheia which is the practice of living a life filled with making the right choices and ethics being at the core of those choices.

Great listen.

Philosophy is a subject that interested me in high school. Stoicism, in particular, is an idea that relies heavily on the person being in touch with their emotions. John Peterson makes a point of highlighting that it is not enough to know the doctrines, but also to apply them to everyday life. Being able to do that is the focus of this book. Through Tanner's words, the listener should be able to develop habits that celebrate the Stoicism ideals.

I am easily overwhelmed by topics.

Normally I am easily overwhelmed by topics pertaining to philosophy, but the explaining style of this particular book kept me turning the pages. It is well explained, informative, interesting, and covers all the important aspects of stoicism. It was easy to listen and understand. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in philosophical matters! I will surely be keeping an eye out for other explains by the author George Tanner.

Great topic.

Philosophy can be a tough pill to swallow, it can be hard to understand if not delivered in a way that is simple and to the point, and that’s exactly what this book does for the topic of stoicism, something I’ve learned about before not never in-depth like this. Stoicism is the idea that you must be virtuous and overcome negativity in your own life, which can be hard in and of itself, but the author creates such a dynamic idea about the philosophy that it can be used by anyone. The Greek history is interesting, and the beliefs are enlightening.

This book so well explains

This book so well explains and so full of information about the early stoics and the major themes of stoicism. Has a great deal of information other books on stoicism don't have. Not much to add to the other great reviews.

Great book.

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.
