Book Summary
Why did the greatest minds in history, from George Washington to Frederick the Great, through Ralph Waldo Emerson, along with today's top players, from Super Bowl-winning soccer coaches to executive directors and celebrities, embraced the wisdom of the ancient stoics? Because they realize that the most valuable wisdom is eternal and that philosophy is to live a better life, not an exercise in the classroom.

The Daily Stoic offers 366 days of stoic ideas and exercises, with completely new translations of Emperor Marco Aurelio, the playwright Seneca or the slave turned into an Epictetus philosopher, as well as lesser-known luminaries such as Zeno, Cleanthes, and Musonius Rufus. Every day of the year you will find one of his powerful and powerful quotes, as well as historical anecdotes, provocative comments and a useful glossary of Greek terms.

Following these teachings over the course of a year (and, in fact, for years to come) you will find the serenity, self-knowledge, and resilience you need to live well.
