In an already crowded market for Stoic introductory texts, what do you think this text offers that’s different or better? I know Tim and Kasey are well-credentialed; I am just trying to get a sense of what this book might offer the community that’s different from Holiday’s / Pigliucci & Lopez’s/ Brittany Polat’s work. I’ll buy it obviously 🙂 but just trying to get a sense of what you think differentiates it.

Hello SB!

First off, thank you so much for your readership, it’s very much appreciated. Secondly, as a CBT practitioner, Tim believes (as do I) that if one is to adopt a whole new framework to their outlook-aka a philosophy-it is something that must be actively practiced on the daily. Every few entries features an interactive CBT exercise that encourages the reader to practice, apply, and adopt. 365 was created for the “every person”. It is less for those readers into classics and history but geared toward those who are interested in how Stoicism can offer freedom and *lasting* happiness; breaking the philosophy down into tools handed down by the ancient Stoics that has become the foundation of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I was hired to translate CBT and Stoic philosophy for that “every person” because that’s who I am–someone who has shaped their life path by finding redemption through Stoicism and CBT exercises (like stress inoculation, the view from above etc.) This book also features personal vignettes from popular Stoic influencers that tell of real-life situations that speak *to* the reader, not at them, making the philosophy that much more accessible.

I would recommend this book for the Stoic-curious, fans of self-improvement, or simply those who have yet to see Stoicism as “therapeía”.

I hope that helps. 🙂

Hey Kasey, thanks very much for the detailed response. You have given an excellent run down and helped immensely.
