I really enjoyed this one! It was well written and very straight forward for someone who isn’t working towards a PhD or some type of degree! LOL.

I enjoy reading about all Things Roman, most especially the Emperor world. Having the philosophical attitude, mindset towards our mortality does allow you to feel more “free”,

I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to learn more about Rome, emperor’s and even simple philosophy.

A fascinating and interesting book about a fascinating and interesting character, Marcus Aurelius.
It's great to see how we can apply now his philosophy and how his philosophy can still be modern and applied to our current lifestyle.
Highly recommended!
Many thanks to St. Martin's Press and Netgalley for this ARC

I read this book over a couple of days and found within it many parts that were worth highlighting to come back and read again. if you are interested in philo
