From the team that brought you The Obstacle Is the Way and Ego Is the Enemy, a beautiful daily devotional of Stoic meditations.
Why have history's greatest minds - from George Washington to Frederick the Great to Ralph Waldo Emerson along with today's top performers, from Super Bowl-winning football coaches to CEOs and celebrities - embraced the wisdom of the ancient Stoics? Because they realize that the most valuable wisdom is timeless and that philosophy is for living a better life, not a classroom exercise.
The Daily Stoic offers a daily devotional of Stoic insights and exercises, featuring all-new translations from Emperor Marcus Aurelius, playwright Seneca, and slave-turned-philosopher Epictetus as well as lesser-known luminaries like Zeno, Cleanthes, and Musonius Rufus. Every day of the year, you'll find one of their pithy, powerful quotations as well as historical anecdotes, provocative commentary, and a helpful glossary of Greek terms. By following these teachings over the course of a year (and, indeed, for years to come), you'll find the serenity, self-knowledge, and resilience you need to live well.
Great book -distracting voiceovers
The book and content is great. However, in the audiobook, the quotes are read in a suposedely, old-timey voice. It’s very distracting to the point where I have stopped trying to understand and just tune out for these sections.
Especially, when you are play at speeds over 1x, the voice over becomes comical. I have decided to ignore these sections and just refer to the book which I also own.
Great podcast. Listen and grow!!!!
Love the title and the content.
Great read, definitely one to read again and again.
