    Should we strive to be better? As relevant today as it was more than 2,000 years ago the philosophy of stoicism has been and still is the guiding principles of Human affairs and society. From Zeno to Franklin to modern day self improvement gurus we see the common threads and thoughts that result in greatness and happiness. This is a great source of inspiration on the road to better living.

    This is a fantastic book! I cannot recommend it more highly. For me, Stoicism is natural. It is how I have learned the long way around to cope with the world. George Bradley's presentation is written in an easy to understand style that provides the basics of Stoicism in very practical contexts by combining inspirational accounts and day-to-day applications of Stoic ideals.

    My first audiobook! I've had a vague awareness of stoicism for years, but beyond a bit of fascination and support for its concept, I've never truly looked into it. This book does a wonderful job of explaining the classic precepts of the stoic philosophy while relating them to modern life with both historic and modern anecdotes. I highly recommend this book for anyone even vaguely interested in incorporating the stoic philosophy into their life. My first audiobook!

    Excellent and recent references from disparate sources, this book serves as a practical guide and future booklist generator.

    Stoic in name. A collage of quotes of definitely non-Stoic characters like Bukowsky, 50 Cent, Clinton, etc pierced together with some Stoic concepts. Definitely not what I had in mind.
