Summary

The Stoic philosophy involves incorporating powerful practices to cope with the ever-evolving challenges of today’s world. It is all about overcoming destructive emotions and developing moral virtues that help us become better human beings. This audiobook focuses on easy, practical ways to develop the virtues of self-discipline, mental toughness, confidence, and productivity and finally managing jealousy and anger. These traits can help us have control over our actions, thoughts, and feelings in an unpredictable world. 

Stoicism is not just developing these virtues, but it’s about making them a way of life - practicing them every day. Such a permanent change cannot happen overnight. As a result of years of bad habits, your brain is already wired to work in a certain way; actions and reactions happen subconsciously, that is, without having to think about it. The good news is that small, deliberate changes to your behavior and continuous practice of the same can reverse your mentality.

Great Deal...!

This book is so well written and so full of information about the early stoics and the major themes of stoicism. Has a great deal of information other books on stoicism don't have.

Quite promising

An inspiring and beautiful guide that harnesses one’s fortitude and improves one’s self-control. The principles and ideas I heard from this sounded like they were not written thousands years ago, but it felt like yesterday. The wisdom I gained from this book is incomparable!

This book is not intimidating.

If you want to learn about stoicism, this is the best book to begin with. The simple daily practices outlined here are giving me the confidence that I need as I’m all new to this. I’m looking forward to living my life the best way possible. To the author: thanks a lot, Chandler Andersen.

Decent book of stoicism

The stoicism lifestyle is something I’ve been meaning to develop. So thankful I found an evolving audio book that I can listen to as I travel for work each day. Overcoming destructive emotions is possible with the aid of this decent book to date.
