Allen asked:

Please suggest other books on applying stoicism in life?

Khalil Letters from a Stoic by Seneca, and Meditations by Marcus Aurelius
Abel Hernandez "Ego is the enemy" is also great!
thomas Meditations can be a tough slog. Pigliucci's "How to be a Stoic" is highly readable and gives you more grounding in philosophy. Also, Epictetus "The Art of Living" by Sharon Lebell (called an interpretation because she modernizes it) is terrific
Alex Try "Thoughts of a Philosophical Fighter Pilot" by James Bond Stockdale; he's one of the examples used in "The Obstacle is the Way."
Jen Targ Aside from Marcus Aurelius and Seneca, Enchiridion by Epictetus, A Guide to the Good Life by William Irvine (although most people, esp academics, rail against this one), and Albert Ellis' A Guide to Rational Living.
Ron Follow Ryan Holiday. He is releasing his book: The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living
