An excellent book! While it can be really dense, it is well worth the read. And if you need some help unpacking what Epictetus said, then I offer you my service. I wrote commentary for each of the four books in Discourses. You can follow this link to get to the commentary: https://twitter.com/rockyrooktweets/s...

It's also wise to remember that Marcus Aurelius got a lot of his ideas from Epictetus. Marcus' tutor Rusticus mentored him in the philosophy and even gave him "notes" by Arian who was a pupil of Epictetus. So if you want to really understand Marcus, go read from Epictetus!
