Publisher's Summary

Are you tired of being afraid of what’s to come in life? Do you wish you could better control your reactions to adverse situations? Are you looking for teachings, exercises, and a moral compass that can guide you to a better way of living?

You’ve come to the right place.

This audiobook takes you, step by step, through the philosophy of stoicism, from its birth to the passions, virtues, and key principles that serve as the foundation of its teachings.

After looking at the history of stoicism, we explore the philosophy as a whole, discussing the irrational passions, good passions, virtues, physics, logic, and ethics, all of which are integral parts of living as a stoic. 

After learning about what stoicism can teach you, you will have the chance to begin practicing its ways yourself with simple exercises, daily living advice, and practical guidance to make your journey as smooth as possible. It won’t be easy to change your life, but it will be worth your efforts.

As a whole, Stoicism will teach you all about this philosophy through chapters like:

  • Whаt Is Stоісіѕm?
  • Bеlіеfѕ аnd Principles оf Stоісіѕm with Hіѕtоrу
  • Key Prіnсірlеѕ Stoic Virtues
  • Old Stоісіѕm vѕ Mоdеrn Stоісіѕm Stоісіѕm Rules tо Follow іn thе Modern Erа
  • Stoic Practices That Will Help You Thrive in This Modernity
  • Meditation
  • And so much more!

It’s never too late to learn how to live. Stoicism offers a reprieve from a way of life that doesn’t offer the greatest happiness. It teaches that mastery over our minds and our reactions, which is the key to achieving "eudemonia" or true happiness.

Stoicism isn’t just a way of thinking. It’s a way of living. And it’s about to change your life.

Don’t wait any longer to take control of your life. Click on the "buy now" button and start living like a stoic, starting today.

Narrator is the worst

Ever heard someone drone on about things at a party? That’s what this book is like. You’ve showed up, you’re happy to be here, but listening to this narrator talk might make you question why you’re sticking around. The good news is that it’s an opportunity to put the concepts of stoicism into practice as you learn more about them.

Excellent book

This is an amazing book. It provides a clear explanation of the stoic and the practical exercises are a good tool to cultivate resilience and a sane approach to face the life adversities.

Great into to the Stoic Philosophy

I'm really learning a lot and am amazed to find that Stoic philosophy is very similar to cognitive behavioral therapy. This isn't some dry, dusty tome. you can use these ideas in your very modern life.

I would recommend it to anyone

I was looking for a book that was similar to a devotional without the religious aspect. I also wanted a daily reminder of mindfulness, awareness, philosophy, meditation, and thought. This book is exactly what I was looking for. I would recommend it to anyone.

Get the Hardback Edition for True Daily Listening

I love everything about this book.
I've been a fan of Jason's writing for quite a while, and consider him a mentor through the written word at this point.
What's great about this format is the daily format. I start off my entire day with a few minutes of wisdom from the Stoic masters, and it literally helps me have a better day. I'm more mindful, focused, and thoughtful. I'm more of a Stoic.

Amazing, I recommend this to everyone

This book is amazing. It has the ability to magically have relevance to my life each time I pick it up. It is amazing to realize that such great men existed and if anything, should be great role models to you. This will really hit home especially if you're a logical / scientific person. PLEASE BUY THIS BOOK!

Great book!

Great book with lots to think about. In a world of bad new, complainers, it's nice to learn that you control others actions, only your own.
