Looking to learn what is within your control and not?
Looking for inner harmony? If you are willing to work for them this book is for you!✌🏾
The first books to read are the books about the general principles of Stoicism. There are quite a few out there.
Then, when you are familiar with the simple, basic principles of Stoicism, this book fits in beautifully as does The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius.
As a philosophy of life, Stoicism has changed my life. It makes so much sense. Especially, to let things go of which you have no control.
I could go on and on, but I would not be a good Stoic I did.
Put the principles into practice and you'll be better for it
That is why serious students of philosophy and psychology will read and reflect. People who don't want to evolve will find this to be "common sense" (it's not) and will simply read this and complain. Which one are you?
Many thanks to Sam Torode for putting this manual into clear, easy-to -understand language. It was a great quick read and I look forward to re-reading, as well as reading Book #2 in the series, 'The Meditations - A Philosophers Guide', and the authors' other translation of some classic works. Having these editions of these two books is great if you're anything like me and needed a more accessible version of the philosophy, esp. as a newbie to this arena of thought. Highly recommend.
