It is nice when an overview/introduction to a philosophical system can be enjoyable and informative to someone who is skeptical. I am skeptical and this is he third or fourth intro to stoicism that I have gone through. This is my favorite. Th content is well organized and the narrator was perfect. This is a great place to start.

Dean Cohen's Stoicism for Beginners is a very good overview of stoicism and its history. He breaks it down very well, explaining what stoicism is, what it's practices and beliefs are, and also the history of stoicism from across the centuries, outlining the different 'ages'/'types'. It was well organised and had a good flow to the writing and the structure.
I found the book to be more of an 'about' book, rather than a 'how to' book, which is something I appreciated, but it will depend what you are looking for.
Narrator Kevin Theis is overly energetic in his reading. Excitable. Every sentence is strong and forceful, which means if everything is forceful, then nothing is. Otherwise he was fine - well paced, clear and fairly easy to listen to.
