Description

The Tao of Seneca (volumes 1-3) is an introduction to Stoic philosophy through the words of Seneca. If you study Seneca, you'll be in good company. He was popular with the educated elite of the Greco-Roman Empire, but Thomas Jefferson also had Seneca on his bedside table. Thought leaders in Silicon Valley tout the benefits of Stoicism, and NFL management, coaches, and players alike - from teams such as the Patriots and Seahawks - have embraced it because the principles make them better competitors. Stoicism is a no-nonsense philosophical system designed to produce dramatic real-world effects. Think of it as an ideal operating system for thriving in high-stress environments. This is your guide.

Interesting voice actor but

What would have made The Tao of Seneca better?

Interesting voice actor but too difficult to listen to for long making this a book I'm struggling to finish our enjoy. I also don't like how Audible deleted all the earlier negative reviews . I regret blowing a credit on this book and felt my earlier review was fair.

No problem with audio. Excellent content.

The content is excellent. The audio problems mentioned in previous reviews appear to have been fixed. I did not notice any such problems. So if you are sitting the fence because of those reports (as I initially was), don't worry about it.

This is a must read.

What made the experience of listening to The Tao of Seneca the most enjoyable?

The narrator, John Robinson, did a wonderful job. In a unique way, Robinson's reiteration portrays the voice and emotion of Seneca, which really helps the listener understand Seneca's message in each letter.

Have you listened to any of John A. Robinson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely. I will be buying the entire series and I am excited to share my experience with friends and family.

Any additional comments?

As an attorney, I feel like I am above average when it comes to comprehension, especially when it comes to reading. There are times when I have a hard time reading Seneca's letters. This audio book allowed me, as a student, to fully grasp and understand the meaning behind Seneca's letters.

Highly recommended

I recently bought this and I'm really enjoying the work. Not only because of the content, but also the way its set up. You can easily listen to a chapter of this book whenever you Find 10 minutes.

What would make it even better was if the chapters had titles. F.e. 'Chapter 1: Saving time' instead of chapter 1. There are a lot of chapters and I like relisten some of them. Its easier to navigate the book this way imho.

Great Content, Noise Issues Don't Ruin It

What did you love best about The Tao of Seneca?

The narrator has a great voice, and the content is superb.

What did you like best about this story?

How much content there is!

What does John A. Robinson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A classic feel as though Seneca were speaking to me.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

Remaining calm and focused despite what life might throw towards me. Stoicism promotes a great mindset to thrive in this crazy world.

Any additional comments?

People have complained about sound issues, and my download totally had them. However, it's very brief and I could still understand John. I'll be getting the other two volumes for sure.

Amazing

I love the format of the short stories. Little powerful punches of highly insightful messages. I haven't found anything recently that has captured my attention so fully! I often get sidetracked by full audio books and conversational podcasts don't always captivate me. Having Seneca's short stories is such a gift :)

Excellent work Seneca. You did alright too Tim

Outstanding messages that stand the test of time. But it seems a little more time in preparation would have helped the sound quality. It's such a silly thing to be upset about, get over it people, if you learned anything in this book it wouldn't bother you. I would give it a 4.79 stars if I could, just because I am not a perfect stoic.

Great for short daily doses of stoicism philosophy, buy if you are into meditation

When I hear Seneca I think boring. I'd rather listen to a podcast, but I'm glad I bought this.

The first letter is pretty long, the rest aren't like that.

The other letters are short enough to listen one a day for 15 mins.

The preface is a fun origin story.

If you are in a high stress environment, in a high performance career or trying to attain a greater level of self-development, these ancient letters give good insight on the Stoic philosophy.

Well worth the 1 credit on audible, I preordered the other 2 as well.

Audio book

I have just entered the wonderful world of stoicism and was very much looking forward to hearing this particular book. Much to my surprise and early on annoyance, I found myself utterly unable to continue hearing this audio book. It is read much like untrained people image acting or good reading out loud to be, forced, faked and quite obviously so. It is surely my personal experience and taste that I would rather not be disturbed by the reader whilst trying to focus on the writings, that is, that the how is being read should never deem more attention that that of what is being spoken of. A real pity.

I cant focus on Seneca, because of the speaker

John A. Robinson cannot pronaunce any words with "ch" and hardly any words with "s" in them. It is therefore impossible to focus on what he is saying. I have stopped listening after letter 6, because it annoyed me so much and could not focus on what he was saying anymore.

Philosophy you can actually use

Great audio book that makes you think about the way you live. Careful, you may actually change something (or even a lot, like quitting your job) after listening.
