Publisher's Summary

The Enchiridion and Discourses is a compilation of Epictetus's philosophical teachings. Although Epictetus spent much of his life as a slave, he believed that all people were free to control their emotional well-being and live in harmony with their circumstance and those around them. His works are a guide for applying philosophy to day-to-day living and have been revered by countless readers and listeners over the centuries because of their practicality. Although many of the great philosophers, such as Plato and Aristotle, promoted grand ideas, they never approached the subject of integrating those ideas into everyday life. He taught his pupils that happiness comes from within.
After attaining his freedom, Epictetus began teaching his philosophy on what it took to have a tranquil and happy life. For those seeking contentment in their lives, these books are the perfect place to start.

Free Version on Librivox is better

Free Version on Librivox is better but not by much.

The narrator reads at fast pace, no inflection, it is impossible to get anything from his reading.
