Excellent presentation.

It would just be nice if the chapters were labeled. I'm a disabled veteran and hear most of my books due to disabilities. it might be nice to understand what chapters cover what topics.

Helpful and Extremely Clear!

I thought may be a ble to|this may|this might|this could"> this is able to be a visit to the past but it now seems to me that the past is a lot more present than I had anticipated. The book features a modern touch allowing me to enter into the dialogue... Not as spectator but as a participant. Great insights, valuable experience.

Very insightful!

Nice book for beginners like me. At first, i used to be disappointing that it had been n't Matt who was narrating it on the other hand I appropriate that it was done by professional because the pronunciation is so clear that I can even do the dishes while taking note of it.As for the book itself, I'm gonna hear it again directly after finishing it. And now I also need a paper version to place some bookmarks, underline some text, etc.

This is absolutely the best one

I was given this free book audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.I considerably enjoy the narrator's voice -- he sounds noble, even regal, and well-suited to the content of Stoic literature.I'm particularly glad that this collection includes not only Meditations, but Seneca and Epictetus. it is a great value and a superb addition to my library.

Absolutely Fabulous

There is a good range of Stoicism books out there. Most are boring and are either weighted too heavily on philosophical history or just not entertaining to listen ..present a piece that's , dare I say it..., fun to concentrate . Hell, they even have doodle drawings. The right down to earth explanations of not only Stoicism but the sensible ways to implement it's welcoming.

Good positive book.

I never knew anything about stoicism or what it pertained to. After reading this book, it had been easy to know why this is often becoming popular today. The author did an incredible job with this work and that i anticipate to reading more from them. i feel that the knowledge their books offer is unmatched.

Quality content and narration!

Use this book to verify material presented in other books on stoicism. The language during this book is antiquated. So sometimes once I wasn't fully devoured to my very own comprehension, j wasn't getting the maximum amount out of it as might otherwise. a number of the ideas don't jive with modern society but still tons of wisdom here.

great

I'm unsure how I got this far in my life without knowing about Stoic Philosophy by name, this book has been a game changer on behalf of me and, because of me, dozens of friends and relations too. I even have been committed to listening and journaling the daily passages a day for 10 months now and it's truly opened my eyes - and my mind - to such a lot that I even have been missing.

I highly recommend this audiobook

Got this as a present and he absolutely loved the book. Showed up quickly, great condition. The book was an excellent start, nothing too far over my head- tons of those books can get to be the sort you've got to read over a few times before moving on. This was that but also , deep and influential still.

Excellent Audiobook

Very well organized, the main ideas of Stoic philosophy meticulously explained and made relevant to everyday life, the quotes of ancient Stoics presented in modern English. If you want to buy just one book on Stoicism, buy this one .
