A fantastic resource I'm pleased I got it.

This book shows how to live a moral life and how to avoid worrying about things over which you have no control. You'll simply overlook them because the book's quality and value are exceptional. This is a book you'll listen to multiple times, and it'll serve as a gateway for learning about the other Greek philosophers known as stoics. This book is definitely worth listening to!!!

This book looks into those who educate in-depth.

This book explores people who educate in-depth and in a practical way. It explores philosophy from a unique perspective and offers approaches that most people are unfamiliar with, such as living a meaningful life and deviating from most standard practices.

Must be listened over and over again

This is most obviously a stoicism beginner's book, but that's precisely what I needed. There are a few terms that stand out in the text that I'll go through individually. Definitely something that has to be listened to again and over in order to develop the habits and strengthen our thinking intellectually.
