I gave the book 4 stars.

It may well be excellent, however, I just didn't fully understand it and it for all it's pages it did not give the kind of background on the beliefs of stoicism that I was hoping for.

I think the book was not what I wanted and I didn't fully appreciate what I was buying. But I don't want to mark it down on that basis.
