Where can you find true joy? How can you harness the power of reason? What's the true measure of success? How should we manage anger? Find meaning? Conquer grief? The answers to these questions and more lie at the heart of Stoic philosophy. Long the secret weapon of history's great figures, from emperors and fighter pilots to artists and activists, the principles of Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus, and Seneca have shone brightly through the centuries as a philosophy for doers. Tested in the laboratory of human experience over the last two thousand years, this timeless knowledge is essential to navigating the complexities of modern life.
The Daily Stoic is a compelling, accessible guide to the good life - bringing classic wisdom to a new generation.
