The daily Stoic: 366 meditations on wisdom, perseverance, and the art of living

Holiday, Ryan, author; Hanselman, Stephen, author

The Stoics' unique blend of practicality and wisdom has been inspiring the most successful among us for centuries, from Roman emperors to Barack Obama, and most recently via Ryan Holiday's bestselling 'The Obstacle Is The Way'. If that book introduced readers to the idea that what is in the way is the way, 'The Daily Stoic' widens our view on the Stoic philosophy and shows that it can be applied to any problem. From how to manage failure to getting what you want, the ideas of Seneca, Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius and others continue to be vitally relevant to today's doers and thinkers. Here, in bold new translations, language is stripped down to reveal powerful aphorisms that cut straight to the heart of our day-to-day challenges
