Very sound and logical life advice. Makes me want to know more about Stoicism.

This is a very inspiring little book. The ideas in it are so very useful for looking at all aspects of life. The author uses many examples of people who have used the Stoic Philosophy in their lives to overcome and view obstacles in a unique way.

This is a good read for gaining perspective. It's not at all cheesy and is written in a way that is very accessible and easy to read and get into. The author lays out various points in Stoic Philosophy as strategies to manage and move through obstacles in life. Each point is well articulated and throughout the book there are interesting examples of prominent historical figures who took and embodied the philosophical points described and owed their successes to how that shaped their approach to the challenges they faced. It makes what he is talking about feel very relevant. It comes across as less of a "self help" book and as more of a manifesto of useful things to think about.
