The Tao of Seneca (volumes 1-3) is an introduction to Stoic philosophy through the words of Seneca. If you study Seneca, you'll be in good company. He was popular with the educated elite of the Greco-Roman Empire, but Thomas Jefferson also had Seneca on his bedside table. Thought leaders in Silicon Valley tout the benefits of Stoicism, and NFL management, coaches, and players alike - from teams such as the Patriots and Seahawks - have embraced it because the principles make them better competitors. Stoicism is a no-nonsense philosophical system designed to produce dramatic real-world effects. Think of it as an ideal operating system for thriving in high-stress environments. This is your guide.

It’s been put together brilliantly
The way it’s been put together is fantastic.
The narrator really nails the message & tonality of Seneca’s points on Stoicism.
After listening for a while you forget Seneca actually died 2000 years ago and didn’t actually make the audiobook.
Great recording, however...
This is a great recording, however it is annoying that it is presented as a single audio file without any track listing. It would be much more approachable if one could select which letter they wanted to read...
Edit: It looks like the track listing is available when listening in iBooks rather than iTunes. Yay!
Fantastic content, chapters/tracks a mess
Been looking forward to this for a long time. Started listening from start to finish, however I find Seneca's letters are best listened to intentionally - the tracks don't correspond to the beginning and ends of the letters.
Hopefully this is resolved at some point!
