This audiobook includes:

  1. Stoicism: Introduction to the Stoic Way of Life

Stoicism may be an ancient philosophy, but it is one that has even more relevance to our daily lives now that we are in the modern world. Too often, we find that we aren’t able to control our lives, control the events that go on, or even control the people and how they act. But with Stoicism, we learn that we can control some things, such as our emotions and our reactions, and this can help to lead us to happiness.

In this complete guidebook, we are going to take you from the very basics of using Stoicism in your daily life, to complete mastery. We will show you how this ancient philosophy is going to work to make you feel happier and more virtuous. Some of the things that we will talk about include:

  • What is Stoicism
  • The early history of Stoicism, from its founding as a school of thought by Zeno in 300 BC to its decline due to the growing popularity of Christianity, and its resurgence in modern times
  • Profiles of three Stoic masters who played a major role in the development of the Stoic philosophy: Epictetus, the former slave who became one of the most influential Stoic philosophers; Marcus Aurelius, the Roman emperor who helped promote its popularity; and the controversial Seneca, who sought to live the Stoic life in spite of his lavish lifestyle
  • Recognizing the things that are under your control
  • How to conform to your own reality
  • Understanding how your emotions work
  • The importance of freedom of will
  • Learning how to be calm when there is adversity around
  • Learning how to make the best of all situations
  • How to use Stoicism in order to make your life better
  • How to use the process of neuroplasticity to change around your mind and how you react to things
  • How to use affirmations to help with Stoicism
  • Simple ideas to implement some of the Stoic philosophy into your daily life

When you are ready to find the true happiness that belongs to you and bring some of the Stoic ideas into your life, make sure to follow through this guidebook and learn just how great it can be to live the Stoic way of life.

Total waste of time

Excellent job at finding the words to repeat the same thing in different ways over 5 hours. Total waste of time.

Gave up after 20 min

I couldn’t stand listening to this book for more than 20 minutes. I’m interested in stoicism and wanted to learn more about it. But this book sounds like it was written by a high schooler who just read the Wikipedia articles on it.

Difficult to enjoy

I’m not crazy about the narration. The cadence is kind of plodding and blunt. Also, it’s not well written and comes across like someone reading a book report. For example at one point he talks about the desire people have to exert control over outside forces (which isn’t possible) and contrasts it with the benefits of having control over your emotions. But the whole time he uses the word “control “ as a shortcut for both concepts, which is confusing. I shouldn’t try to be in control, but rather I should practice being in control?

Also, the three books aren’t defined in the chapter list, so if you want to listen to a particular one, you have to hunt around.

The whole thing feels somewhat amateurish and doesn’t give me confidence that he knows what he’s talking about. He may be an expert, though. I just don’t want to keep listening.

Good to listen

An ideal book for both beginners and experienced people. Because here it is well described the importance of each step, as well as what will be if treated lightly.

felt like an introduction

What disappointed you about Stoicism: 3 Books in One?

The entire thing felt like it was introducing topics that would be developed later. Too bad that was all there was. Overall it was not nearly deep or interesting enough.
