Publisher's Summary

Stoicism is an ancient Greek philosophy which teaches the development of self-control and fortitude as a means of overcoming destructive emotions. It does not seek to extinguish emotions completely, but rather seeks to transform them through logic and reason, which enables a person to develop clear judgment, inner calm and freedom from suffering (which is considered the ultimate goal).
This book will guide you through the origins and teachings of Stoicism, through direct quotes and experiences from its founding fathers. In this book, you will learn:


What Stoicism is and where it comes from
The principles and beliefs of Stoicism
How Stoicism is applied to health and wellness
How to effectively control your emotions
How to begin implementing Stoicism into your life
How to improve any situation with Stoicism
How neuroplasticity applies to Stoicism

Nothing to gain

If you are looking for a quick explanation of what Stoicism is, then this might be your thing. But if you are looking to expand your thinking, this is not the right book. What was missing was a conversation about the applications of stoicism and how it applies to you today. There was mention of this at points in the book, albeit brefily, but not enough to overcome the book's lack of depth.

So-so

It was very hard to listen to this as the reader was very monotone and the material very dry. If you can get past this, then it is a good introduction, but I would recommend you Google this information. You don't need this book to get started.
