Description

From the team that brought you The Obstacle Is the Way and Ego Is the Enemy, a beautiful daily devotional of Stoic meditations.

Why have history's greatest minds - from George Washington to Frederick the Great to Ralph Waldo Emerson along with today's top performers, from Super Bowl-winning football coaches to CEOs and celebrities - embraced the wisdom of the ancient Stoics? Because they realize that the most valuable wisdom is timeless and that philosophy is for living a better life, not a classroom exercise.

The Daily Stoic offers a daily devotional of Stoic insights and exercises, featuring all-new translations from Emperor Marcus Aurelius, playwright Seneca, and slave-turned-philosopher Epictetus as well as lesser-known luminaries like Zeno, Cleanthes, and Musonius Rufus. Every day of the year, you'll find one of their pithy, powerful quotations as well as historical anecdotes, provocative commentary, and a helpful glossary of Greek terms. By following these teachings over the course of a year (and, indeed, for years to come), you'll find the serenity, self-knowledge, and resilience you need to live well.

Not well made as audio

What disappointed you about The Daily Stoic?

You're supposed to listen to one meditation every day, but there is no audible separation between the 366 meditations so you don't know when to stop.... It turned out being a frustration experience instead of meditation.

Any additional comments?

Remake it asap, make a beep or somehow audibly announce when a chapter ends.

Makes Stoicism Accessible

Would you consider the audio edition of The Daily Stoic to be better than the print version?

The audio version is a great compliment to the printed version. Well narrated with multiple voices in a tasteful effort to sound like your listening to the scholars themselves.

What other book might you compare The Daily Stoic to and why?

The Daily Stoic is an instant timeless classic

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Each meditation is structured in a powerful way providing a concept, stoic quote, then description of how to apply in daily life.

Any additional comments?

The Daily Stoic is fantastic foundational book as both an introduction to stoicism and valuable essence of the best stoic concepts which is great for someone who reads the original stoic works regularly.

Really useful but maybe the paperback is better

This was supposed to be read one chapter per day, but who does that, right? Useful quotes and all very applicable in life. Definitely worth buying, but since this is the type of book you would always come back to whenever you need an enlightenment, I think probably better to own the paperback version (not that the audiobook is not good, it's just for practicality, easier to go to the chapter you want if it's a physical book).

Narration is off-putting

I really like the fact that all of these pearls of wisdom are gathered into one place, but I think I’d like the print version better. The narrator sounds at best like a newscaster, at worst like he’s barking orders. I’m less receptive to the ideas because of the narrator.

good as daily companion

What is most valuable is the organization of the book into an almost annual course of stoicism. One can literally do one meditaion per day and make substantial progress. Even the authors comments which put each mediation into the frame of todays world are very helpfull. The only weekness is the somewhat pompous tone of the narration which seems to attempt to indduce the emperial atmosfere of roman senate and the result is a bit funny and unecessarily unatural for today. I don't really get it why these audios always try this tone when it comes to stoicism as if someone really new how the emperors sounded 2 000 years ago.

The book is worth everything, the reader is not.

I’d recommend the book for sure but I don’t think you can listen to it very well. He reader does his best at changing his tone to indicate different voices but it gets to be annoying. Best way to get the essence and points are to just read them directly.

Great way to start the day.

At first I had trouble taking it seriously because the narrotor almost sounds like he’s joking or laughing while reading it. But it grew on me and now I remember quotes in that voice and it makes it more memorable. Great lessons and I use it as meditations in the morning with my coffee and it makes for a good start of the day.

Great Reference Book For Everyday Struggles


An excellent book that uses fantastic examples from history to make us both see what it takes to achieve anything great and to be at peace with ourselves.

Ryan Holliday's work will bring you back to earth so that you can see what others have seen and what the rest has missed. When we are not happy, it's not about the world around us but the world inside that is constantly at war. Here is a tool to change your perspective.

Lots of learnings

Some learnings are difficult to make sense of, but the author's explanation makes each of them practically applicable

A routinely accomplished task in American English.

Würden Sie dieses Buch einem Freund empfehlen? Warum oder warum nicht?

The book yes..., the audible book with reserve...

Welche Figur hat Ihnen am besten gefallen? Warum?

I would like to have an involved English( not American) speaker...

Würden Sie es noch mal mit einem anderen Hörbuch mit Brian Holsopple versuchen?

not at all for British English Lovers...:)

Würden Sie sich eine Fortsetzung von The Daily Stoic wünschen? Warum oder warum gerade nicht?

I don't think so..., once is more as enough!!!

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

If a strong American Englisch and not really involved speaker doesn't matter...: YES!!!
There is no alternative...,
Anyway, it is better as nothing...
I'd like to have a better version, but I'm lucky to have at least this one:)
