This is the most concise book on Stoicism I’ve ever read, and is full of valuable insights. It’s surprising, in a way, how it was written so long ago, and applies so easily and directly to modern life. Sam Torode’s translations of both Mediations and The Manual are my favorite, as they re-write ideas in modern language.

I highly recommend this book if you’re interested in Stoic philosophy — everyone can get something from the wisdom in these pages.
