Publisher's Summary

The Tao of Seneca (volumes 1-3) is an introduction to Stoic philosophy through the words of Seneca. If you study Seneca, you'll be in good company. He was popular with the educated elite of the Greco-Roman Empire, but Thomas Jefferson also had Seneca on his bedside table. Thought leaders in Silicon Valley tout the benefits of Stoicism, and NFL management, coaches, and players alike - from teams such as the Patriots and Seahawks - have embraced it because the principles make them better competitors. Stoicism is a no-nonsense philosophical system designed to produce dramatic real-world effects. Think of it as an ideal operating system for thriving in high-stress environments. This is your guide.

Interesting voice actor but

What would have made The Tao of Seneca better?

Interesting voice actor but too difficult to listen to for long making this a book I'm struggling to finish our enjoy. I also don't like how Audible deleted all the earlier negative reviews . I regret blowing a credit on this book and felt my earlier review was fair.

I can only be honest...

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes I would recommend it. But I would recommend listening to the audiobook version first because the narrator's voice is quite difficult to listen to.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Tao of Seneca?

Nothing stood out.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of John A. Robinson?

ME!

Was The Tao of Seneca worth the listening time?

If the narrator was easier to listen to.

Any additional comments?

Trial narrator's prior to going ahead. For me, John A. Robinson's voice really get's in the way.

I adore!

I adore this audiobook, it takes me completely out of this world or any situation and provides a powerful and actionable insight. It's wonderful.

I'm now a third... or half way through. I'm not entirely sure since the chapters aren't titled and I sometimes lose my place.

Please title the chapters!

Thank you for creating this and providing access to such an essential piece of philosophy. An impatient reader, I don't think I'd have the same pleasure reading as hearing Seneca.

A very well made audiobook and very interesting listen

For me, I found little nuggets of knowledge in almost every letter.

I have adopted some of these stoic practices in my day to day life and had already been practising a couple of them.

I have recommended this book/audiobook to many of friends and colleagues already. I am a big fan of the teachings of the stoics. I believe that many people could benefit by implementing some of these philosophies in their day to day lives.

Note: I will expand this review when not on my iPhone.
