Publisher's Summary

From the team that brought you The Obstacle Is the Way and Ego Is the Enemy, a beautiful daily devotional of Stoic meditations.

Why have history's greatest minds - from George Washington to Frederick the Great to Ralph Waldo Emerson along with today's top performers, from Super Bowl-winning football coaches to CEOs and celebrities - embraced the wisdom of the ancient Stoics? Because they realize that the most valuable wisdom is timeless and that philosophy is for living a better life, not a classroom exercise.

The Daily Stoic offers a daily devotional of Stoic insights and exercises, featuring all-new translations from Emperor Marcus Aurelius, playwright Seneca, and slave-turned-philosopher Epictetus as well as lesser-known luminaries like Zeno, Cleanthes, and Musonius Rufus. Every day of the year, you'll find one of their pithy, powerful quotations as well as historical anecdotes, provocative commentary, and a helpful glossary of Greek terms. By following these teachings over the course of a year (and, indeed, for years to come), you'll find the serenity, self-knowledge, and resilience you need to live well.

    "Great content, TERRIBLE audio delivery"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm a big fan of stoic philosophy and enjoyed the daily meditation concept. However, this is one to read; the audio fails miserably. The narrator sounds like a 1950s infomercial, and it's awfully distracting. I stopped listening a few chapters in.

    "Simply brilliant"

    fantastic, inspirational and concise, this book is the perfect way of absorbing and putting into practice the teachings of some of the greatest philosophers to have lived. A great stand alone book but also really useful as a companion to Seneca's Letters from A Stoic and Marcus Aurelius's Meditations -it neatly distills the most inspirational quotes from stoic literature and makes it to understandabke to all.

    "Makes Stoicism Accessible"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Daily Stoic to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is a great compliment to the printed version. Well narrated with multiple voices in a tasteful effort to sound like your listening to the scholars themselves.


    What other book might you compare The Daily Stoic to and why?

    The Daily Stoic is an instant timeless classic


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Each meditation is structured in a powerful way providing a concept, stoic quote, then description of how to apply in daily life.


    Any additional comments?

    The Daily Stoic is fantastic foundational book as both an introduction to stoicism and valuable essence of the best stoic concepts which is great for someone who reads the original stoic works regularly.

    "This book skips around and repeats"

    The audible function for this book is malfunctioning
    It repeats portions of chapters and stays in a loop

    "Needs a new narrator"

    This book may have been more interesting, but the narrator's voice killed it for me.
