Publisher's Summary

Lucius Annaeus Seneca (1- 65 CE) was a complete and successful man of the world. A famous writer, statesman, and philosopher who became absurdly wealthy, he parlayed his role as Emperor Nero's tutor into becoming one of the two men who ruled the Roman Empire in Nero's name. In his lifetime, Seneca enjoyed nearly unlimited power, wealth and fame. Seneca was dedicated to Stoicism, and in his essays and letters he explained the stoic position on many fundamental issues: pleasure and the problem of desire, happiness, and contentment; anger, fear, living in the present, how to think for yourself, anxiety and tranquillity, goodness, freedom, trusting the universe; courage, opportunity, cruelty and how to deal with it, friendship, love and trust, death and how to live, learning , chance and fate, time, aspirations, wisdom - and more.

Odd presentation style

I am a fan of Seneca,
and have read most of his works.

This collection of sayings was not done
all that well.

The female voice is difficult to understand
at times.

The audio file is worth listening to.
It will give you a sense of Senaca's thoughts,
but I had higher hopes for it.
