No depth..

Well.. It is hard to understand how the score of this book review is quite high. I found this book lack of depth and details when it came to Stoicism. It was quite disappointing to be honest. If you want to study or research about Stoicism, I reckon there will be better books out there.

I love it

This book not only explained this phenomenon but gave some simple yet powerful insight into how change is possible. As elusive as self-discipline can be, I felt for the first time it’s doable. It’s quick to understand and I’m so thankful that I found this book. It’s a definite keeper!

This is an awesome self-improvement guide!

This is an awesome self-improvement guide! In this a great time, that we recently got ourselves furious, focused on, tragic and depressed. This book went into the convictions that the Stoics held, which are altogether different than the prevalent conviction that we see a lot today, which is that there is a generous, caring God viewing over us. Highly recommended!
I have received a free version of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
