's review

it was amazing

Engaging, inspiring, earthly, funny... Epictetus can give you great insights, skills and determination to change your life for the better, even if you don't agree with everything he says.

The text might be old, but our life problems are pretty much the same, so the lessons feel as contemporary and relevant as ever.

We can't avoid pain and hardships. Even though the topics are sombre, there is entertainment value to be had from gallows humour: I was laughing out loud half of the time, and the other half snickering quietly.
