Enjoyed the book.

I did really enjoyed the book. The best summary , with clear focus, on what stoicism is. The best book to “ grap” the philosofy as a way of living...what is more Important was that it show stoicism as something anyone can embrace if it according to his values or if it is willing to have a better life

One of the best!!

In a world where everybody feels entitled to everything and nobody takes responsibility for anything, stoicism offers a little counterpoint of sanity to help you negotiate a path through the insane world we live in nowadays.

The thing I like about the philosophy of Stoicism is that it is so gentle yet so strong. This is a wonderful listen. Every time I pick it up it's like my mind is being healed a little bit more.

disappointed

the narrator seems to forget what he's saying mid sentence and then repeats from a few words previous. random booop noises during audio and then narrator also back tracks a few words and repeats. very distracting

I want a refund or a narrator that can be bothered

Narrator isn't very good. I had read that in other reviews but didn't think id be that bothered but instead, it really is terrible. cheesy American accent, miss reads words and leaves the mistakes in, random noises. it really is a scrappy job which is a shame as I'm sure this could put people off the subject of this is the first stoic book they've came across

save you money or credit and pick another book. I want a refund

Poorly produced.

This is a poorly produced recording. There are multiple reading errors followed by pauses and restarts and yet oddly, these errors have not been edited out. The subject matter would have benefited from a more engaging and inspired delivery but instead gives the impression of being read straight from a book and is therefore somewhat dull. I have several Audible audio-books all of which are generally excellent but unfortunately this one is disappointing.

Not too interesting and bad narration

Not to interesting and the narrator lots of times mistaken words and takes breaks and repeat them. The interesting part is at the end about how the human brain works though that's unrelated to Stoicism.

Any book on stoicism is great.This is no exception

it is a good listen. It has moments where it teaches you what stoicism is. those are the moments other comments say are poor editing or production. It is simply giving a core of stoicism - practice what you have learned.

If you are not sure about this book, pick another one, but just pick any as stoicism should change your life.
