Summary

You are one click away from understanding why stoicism is just as relevant today as it was over 2000 years ago and how to take advantage of the stoic philosophy to live a life free from stress, worry, overthinking, low self-esteem and more! 

Dating to as early as 300 BC, stoicism is making a comeback and setting itself apart as a preferred philosophy for dealing with today’s unique problems/challenges.

There is a reason why some of the most successful people in the world like Tim Ferriss, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Thomas Kaplan, Charlie Munger, and Tim Ferriss swear by the philosophy. It must be offering something unique and attractive for such people to make it a part of their lives. Tim Ferriss even went ahead to refer to it as “a simple and immensely practical set of rules for better results with less effort”.

If you want to achieve massive success, just like the names I mentioned above, perhaps you may want to consider adopting stoicism to shape your thinking so that you could probably have similar sentiments as Tim Ferriss as mentioned above.

But what exactly is stoicism?

What does it entail?

What exactly does the philosophy stand for?

What does it teach?

Who are some of the famous stoics?

How can it better your life?

How do you make it part of your life?

What should you expect from adopting stoicism?

If you have these and many other related questions, keep reading.

This book takes a practical, easy-to-follow approach to help you to understand stoicism inside out so that you can start applying it in your life to realize the benefits that Tim Ferriss, Warren Buffet, Charlie Munger, Thomas Kaplan, Bill Gates and many others get from following stoicism.

The book will teach you:

  • The basics of stoicism, including what it is and what it stands for

Interesting read

I'm not so much familiar with Marcus Aurelius, but the stoic way of life and techniques presented here speak to me personally. I think it was a good read.
The narrator sounds a bit dull, but it does not distract from the content.

The author presented an amazing idea for us

This audible was given to me at a gathering by a companion, and tragically I harmed it so I purchased a duplicate on Amazon. It was well justified, despite all the trouble yet I do wish I purchased a physical duplicate with the goal that I could pass it on.

The audible is Self-explanatory

The reason I did not give the audible five stars is that after several chapters in which acceptance of the outcome and responsibility for personal choices is repeated.
