Great introduction and resource

Provided a great introduction to stoicism in the form of a set of 52 weekly exercises. This works really well in terms of explaining what stoicism is about and what it actually means in practice. It is also a great resource because the exercises provide a really actionable pathway to learning stoicism and benefiting from it via practice

Excellent Manual, Impeccable Reading Performance

The fleeting glimpses of the ephemeral protagonists who appear (and disappear) in this story, remind us that the post-modern era is ended. Will we pick up the mantle of the Classical world or are we bound to a Neo-Dark age?
