Of all the religions, creeds, and self-help manifestos the world has produced, most concentrate on how to achieve salvation in aspects other than the here-and-now, with our lives merely transitory testing grounds for a higher realm or our actions guided so that we maximize life in a state of 'enlightened hedonism,' consuming rapaciously but really achieving not much at all ...more

Should we strive to be better?

As relevant today as it was more than 2,000 years ago the philosophy of stoicism has been and still is the guiding principles of Human affairs and society. From Zeno to Franklin to modern day self improvement gurus we see the common threads and thoughts that result in greatness and happiness. This is a great source of inspiration on the road to better living.

My first audiobook!
I've had a vague awareness of stoicism for years, but beyond a bit of fascination and support for its concept, I've never truly looked into it. This book does a wonderful job of explaining the classic precepts of the stoic philosophy while relating them to modern life with both historic and modern anecdotes.
I highly recommend this book for anyone even vaguely interested in incorporating the stoic philosophy into their life.

This book and the author loses 2 stars for credibility for quoting 50 Cent.

A better brain

Use the Pareto principle when reading this book. 20% good info, 80% filler. Should just have been submitted as a blogpost.
