Publisher's Summary

The Master Stoic: Advanced Principles and Theories of Stoicism That Will Transform Your Approach to Life, is written for individuals who want to master the philosophy of Stoicism in their lives. However, before you proceed with this book, it's recommended that you first listen to the beginner's guide, Stoicism: A Beginner's Guide to the Stoic Way of Life. This will allow you an easier understanding of the basic tenets of Stoicism.
In this second book, a more detailed explanation of the doctrines of each of the significant philosophers of Stoicism will be presented, together with practical examples of how you can apply these beliefs in your daily dealings.
It's beneficial for you to learn about philosophy not because it's a sign of erudition but because you can utilize the tenets properly as your guiding principles in your daily life.
What's the use of mastering all the beliefs of these philosophers, but you don't put them into practice? Knowledge becomes power - only - when you use it.
So, thanks again for purchasing this book. Have fun listening and learning!

Very good guide in Stoicism

I found out a lot of new information. This philosophy was founded by Zeno of Citium. As I understood, Stoicism means to live life in the harmony with nature. Stoicism includes Pantheism, Adiaphora, Rational control over passion, etc. Ethics, logic, and physics are the main parts of stoic education. This book also introduces modern tenets based on Stoicism, there are 14 tenets. All in all, this book is informative and full of information.

Good, but lacking substance

This book is good for any practicing Stoic in that it adequately examines the teachings of famous Stoics and provides suggestions on how to apply them to everyday life. However, the steps are somewhat ambiguous, and instead of guiding the reader through the process of mastering their Stoicism, it provides them with a list of steps to complete. I don’t quite like the “Do these magic steps and you’ll be happy” aspect to books like this. For such a practical philosophy, surely there is an equally practical way to lead readers to their highest potential.
