Summary

Are you tired of the glass being half empty?

Do you worry you don’t have the strength to cope when something bad happens? (And something bad always happens!)

Stoicism changed the lives of its followers for the better and now it can do the same for you.

The Stoics knew what made for a good man – and a good life. Four simple virtues empowered them to cope with the end of a relationship, the loss of a job, ill health, and even bereavement. Now you too can discover for yourself what gave them the emotional resilience to make the most of any situation.

Do you want more enjoyment in life instead of stressing all the time?

In Stoicism: How to Use Stoic Philosophy to Find Inner Peace and Happiness, you will learn about what made the ancient philosophers so wise. You will uncover how to find the opportunity in any challenge and how you can use your journal to transform your life. If you’re looking for the answer to modern stresses and strains, you’ll find it in Stoicism. Specifically, you will discover:

  • Why so many successful people are Stoic
  • The counterintuitive reason you should welcome misfortune
  • Stoicism’s four virtues and how you can apply them in any situation
  • How you can find opportunity in any challenge
  • How you can welcome hardship – and why this is an essential ingredient for happiness
  • How Plato’s view will transform the way you see the world
  • Why you will never have complete control over your life and this is okay

Written in plain English, this book takes profound concepts and delivers them in bite-sized chunks anyone can understand, even if you’re completely new to philosophy.

Life’s a journey, but you don’t have to travel alone. With Stoicism on your side, you’ll be able to roll with the punches and make the most of whatever comes your way.

Download this book now and discover the secrets of stoicism today.

A decent, short listen

If you are new to Stoicism and fancy an easy intro to some of the concepts this could be good for you.

The narrator is easy to listen to and the content is presented in a very accessible way. It touches upon some valuable insights at times, but it is a bit surface-level if you are already acquainted with Stoicism.

While is nothing new here in terms of interpretations made by the author, and some questionable examples and/or tasks presented, I doubt anyone would regret the time invested in this short audiobook on such a valuable topic.

Enjoy!

Great lessons

The narrator could have had a better tempo, especially at the end of the sentences. The book narrative in general was nice, great lessons for life were presented and explained in a simple way.
