It was worth listen

I've had my audible copy for some time now and I pretty much just listen to it when I need it, set it aside, then read some more when I need the boost. It gives a good overall view of Stoicism

This pocket-sized book is quite a self-help guide, it's more of a philosophy book with tools readers can use to unlock the keys of stoicism with.

Everything written in this book makes sense

The Beginner’s Guide To Stoicism feels a bit like stoic philosophy itself, seemingly simple, yet profoundly powerful. This book contains a solid overview of stoicism, techniques for implementing the stoic teachings within your life, and resources for more in-depth study.
