Great introduction to stoicism

Enjoyed it thoroughly. It can get hard to continue sometimes, but keep at it and I promise it will pay off.

Very much understanding

I accept the objective was to show a depiction and after that extend, however, I don't feel that the development is truly widening my understanding as much as simply reusing similar ideas.

This is a generally excellent prologue to Stoicism

This is a generally excellent prologue to Stoicism, with a decent blend of direct statements and clarifications. There are a couple of errors and altering miscues, yet the general substance is as yet strong.

It's an incredible audiobook with straightforward

It's an incredible audiobook with straightforward, yet amazing portrayals of the most significant Stoic suspicions. Incredible guide for both those curious about the way of thinking, yet in addition those, that possibly have perused a ton about it yet at the same time need some kind of organizing of the information picked up. It's effectively worth multiple times the cost. Get it now!

I highly recommend this great audiobook.

This was a simple and fascinating perused. Generally speaking, It is a decent take a gander at the Gain Wisdom of Stoicism and can be a decent resource. The life of Marcus Aurelius and the Stoic procedures he used to deal with misfortune are as yet applicable and valuable today as shown in this audiobook. So, I highly recommend this great audiobook.

Helpful audiobook

For the student of philosophy seeking greater knowledge of essential explaining and thinkers in the stoic lexicon, this text provides a thorough and fully attributed survey of stoic thought. For the person seeking instruction and practices that support the pursuit of the good life, this text is a helpful manual replete with exercises and arguments.

Easy to listen

The reason I did not give the audiobook five stars is that after several chapters in which acceptance of the outcome and responsibility for personal choices is repeated, as well as the avoidance of the vagaries of politics, the virtues, and justice of several leftist talking points are extolled. Excepting that closing inconsistency, the audiobook is excellent overall and makes great strides towards increasing access for a larger number of people to a life philosophy that will benefit them and society.

This audiobook's subtlety is truly astounding.

This audiobook's subtlety is truly astounding. After perusing this audiobook I am so intrigued. I would be prescribed for this audiobook to anybody. By and large, uniquely because of the creator.
