This book gave me a lot of information.

Got me very curious about stoicism, and has convinced me that indoctrinating stoic principles into someone's life could drastically improve their quality of life. Would highly recommend it to anyone just looking into stoicism.

Useful book!!

In the event that you need a decent prologue to Stoicism that is famously moderate, shockingly wide in scope, and that causes you see well - this could be among as well as can be expected purchase as a book for a fledgling.

As someone who has been listening to books

As someone who has been listening to books on stoicism for decades, I found this short one the most useful. The first half is a succinct summary of theory.

Very helpful and reasonable.

If you want a good introduction to Stoicism that is eminently affordable, surprisingly wide in scope, and that helps you understand well - this could be among the best that you can buy as a book for a beginner. Or even if your studies are at a more intermediate level, I believe you will find this very good.
