Even those who have been practicing Stoics for a while are likely to find plenty of useful reminders and helpful suggestions in these pages. In other words, if you’re a Stoic, or you’re interested in Stoicism, you should get this book.” [Five stars] Michael Baranowski on Amazon.com

As the ‘Teach Yourself’ name suggests, it is not simply and explanatory text but it provides practical advice and exercises which help a person put Stoic teachings to use in the modern world. If you are interested in how you can apply Stoicism to your life then I would recommend this book.” [Five stars] “Matt” on Amazon.co.uk
