Here is a book that embodies everything good about books: the chance to recapture the most precious insights of distant generations. The Stoics refined an approach to the world that is capable of overturning every other philosophical framework in the western tradition. Adopt this collection of ideas with hesitation; it is difficult to resist the pull, and why would you want to? All that we are conditioned to fear and avoid, the Stoics embrace with clarity and what can roughly be described as gratitude. Mostly misunderstood and forgotten now, these writers were luminaries in their time and their words shine, almost blindingly at times, off the pages.
