    I?ve read this book already but i still read it everyday. It serves as a book vitamin to me. ? It helps me have a positive attitude when i?m feeling down. ? It gives me a whole a new perspective. ? It helps open my mind and help me understand things. ? It helps me fi...

    Read it in just under 6 weeks, rather than a year. Some days are repetitive, but then again so is life, since lessons tend to be repeated until learnt. But as the conclusion says, theory is easy, practice is hard (and never-ending). ___ Stoicism in a nutshell: Virtue (four cardinal v...

    The meditations are so short that they cannot satisfy my daily thirst. However, because the texts are not tightly connected, "reading" quickly on one-go feels like drinking too many different beverages at the same time; soon you lose your feeling. What this book did do is to re-awaken...

    I am a fan of some of Marcus Aurelius' writing so I bought this book looking forward to discovering other ancient Stoic writers. Instead, I found mostly the interpretations of the editor with just small snippets from the Stoic greats. Sometimes it's hard to find the Stoic quotes amidst...

    It's perfect for it's purpose, a daily dip into stoic wisdom. Those who rated it one star are judging against a standard it's not attempting to meet. The author does not claim to give the best translations, only accessible ones. I'm probably going to end up buying this and reading ...

    This was a really good collection of quotes from Stoic philosophers such as Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, and Epictetus and daily meditations from the authors Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman. I read two meditations a day from December 2016 to July 2017. I enjoyed learning from the wisdom...

    This book is seriously life changing. I couldn't imagine my life without it. I'm on my second, going on a third (surely not the last one) loop. ...

    Stoicism is an ancient philosophy. It asserts that virtue (meaning self-control, courage, justice, and wisdom) is happiness. To achieve virtue, and thus live happily, one must master the three Stoic disciplines: perceptions (how you see and understand the world), actions (how you act b...

    In one pithy word: rudimentary. What an affront to the great thinkers of ancient times. Each "daily meditation" is but a tiny drop of water splashing itself into the vast blue sea; nary an impact, nary a difference. Would not recommend. ...

    I have to admit I wasn't reading this every day, I also started it in April, so I have missed a couple of months, I also skipped some days by just completely forgetting about this book, sometimes even weeks. However, some of the quotes and analysis of them were quite relatable, some...

    I bought this book in hopes to get a modern take of stoic philosophy. The book is intended to start on January 1st which is slightly distracting but that's neither here nor there. Each passage has a snippet of a classic stoic philosopher and a few paragraphs on how that particular snip...

    This book is meant to be read one day at a time, but I couldn?t help but go through it over the course of a couple of weeks. Emotional stability is something that?s of the utmost importance if you want to make the best decisions in your life. I find that the stoic philosophy lends ...

    This was the first book I began in 2018, and the last I finished. The one I read the most consistently, yet took all year to finish. The Daily Stoic is a collection of 365 entries, each with a long quotation from a Stoic philosopher and 1-2 paragraphs of explanation and analysis. Th...

    Great book to reflect on important topics of life. This is great to walk your way through the stoic philosophy and practice its teaching every day with a new reflection, if you practice doing the exercise and start really questioning your life and the world around you can benefit i...

    A life changing book that I read a page a day. I'm now on my second loop. ...

    I have read this book more or less with regard to the date as author originally intended ? one piece of stoic wisdom per day. As one of the great stoic, Seneca, recommends ? "Of all people only those are at leisure who make time for philosophy, only they truly live.", I tried to fi...

    What the author has done is to compile quotes from great Stoics (mostly Marcus Aurelius, Seneca and Epictetus) and try to make it relevant to the common reader by making cringeworthy references to Chuck Palahniuk or other modern figures and extremely shallow commentary. This book i...

    Couldn?t recommend this enough. This is one New Years resolution that I?ll be forever thankful I picked up. Over the course of the last year these daily devotionals have managed to change the way I look at the world ever so slightly and have opened my mind to a new life philosophy....

    Started reading this with the new year and stopped today. It was frustratingly repetitive, with only 2 or 3 ideas said over and over again in different ways by different people. ...

    Can't believe it has been a year since I bought this book and read it daily. This is an excellent book, which I keep next to my bed and read before I sleep or as soon as I wake up to get me started on the right foot. The daily entries are insightful, impactful and concise. I'd definite...

    An excellent, practical series of meditations drawing on Stoic philosophy that guide everyday living in the modern world. Surprisingly relevant. Occasionally, the application of Stoic philosophy seemed to be drawing a long bow but, overall, beneficial advice. Much better than some of t...

    I am glad to have this handy book which was a wonderful introduction to Stoic philosophy. Many people may think that philosophy isn't very relevant because it deals with big abstract questions that don't seem to have firm solutions. Well, Stoic philosophy is different. It is completely...

    So disappointed in this book. Stoicism isn't for this emotional artist. ...

    It's perfect for it's purpose, a daily dip into stoic wisdom. Those who rated it one star are judging against a standard it's not attempting to meet. The author does not claim to give the best translations, only accessible ones. I'm probably going to end up buying this and reading ...

    This was a really good collection of quotes from Stoic philosophers such as Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, and Epictetus and daily meditations from the authors Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman. I read two meditations a day from December 2016 to July 2017. I enjoyed learning from the wisdom...

    Stoicism is an ancient philosophy. It asserts that virtue (meaning self-control, courage, justice, and wisdom) is happiness. To achieve virtue, and thus live happily, one must master the three Stoic disciplines: perceptions (how you see and understand the world), actions (how you act b...

    In one pithy word: rudimentary. What an affront to the great thinkers of ancient times. Each "daily meditation" is but a tiny drop of water splashing itself into the vast blue sea; nary an impact, nary a difference. Would not recommend. ...

    I have to admit I wasn't reading this every day, I also started it in April, so I have missed a couple of months, I also skipped some days by just completely forgetting about this book, sometimes even weeks. However, some of the quotes and analysis of them were quite relatable, some...

    I pulled The Daily Stoic out of my tsundoku pile a few weeks ago and am so glad I finally cracked it open! Featuring a daily quote from Stoic philosophers (think Marcus Aurelius), each page offers a different concept to chew on. Monthly themes?clarity, pragmatism, virtue and kindness...

    I liked this a lot. Quotes from the famous Stoics, with limited but useful commentary (the quotations generally speak for themselves). It was an excellent daily reminder of how to properly view the world, and served as a nice primer to Stoic thought. As an aside: this is actually th...

    Excellent stoic ideas from Seneca, Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, Zeno, Cato. The Bible for any modern stoic. The book contains examples from modern history when explaining ancient stoic concepts and stoic quotes. A nice book in today's world. Recommended for young and old, irrelevant whe...

    Read it in just under 6 weeks, rather than a year. Some days are repetitive, but then again so is life, since lessons tend to be repeated until learnt. But as the conclusion says, theory is easy, practice is hard (and never-ending). ___ Stoicism in a nutshell: Virtue (four cardinal v...

    The meditations are so short that they cannot satisfy my daily thirst. However, because the texts are not tightly connected, "reading" quickly on one-go feels like drinking too many different beverages at the same time; soon you lose your feeling. What this book did do is to re-awaken...

    I am a fan of some of Marcus Aurelius' writing so I bought this book looking forward to discovering other ancient Stoic writers. Instead, I found mostly the interpretations of the editor with just small snippets from the Stoic greats. Sometimes it's hard to find the Stoic quotes amidst...

    It's perfect for it's purpose, a daily dip into stoic wisdom. Those who rated it one star are judging against a standard it's not attempting to meet. The author does not claim to give the best translations, only accessible ones. I'm probably going to end up buying this and reading ...

    This was a really good collection of quotes from Stoic philosophers such as Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, and Epictetus and daily meditations from the authors Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman. I read two meditations a day from December 2016 to July 2017. I enjoyed learning from the wisdom...

    This book is seriously life changing. I couldn't imagine my life without it. I'm on my second, going on a third (surely not the last one) loop. ...

    Stoicism is an ancient philosophy. It asserts that virtue (meaning self-control, courage, justice, and wisdom) is happiness. To achieve virtue, and thus live happily, one must master the three Stoic disciplines: perceptions (how you see and understand the world), actions (how you act b...

    In one pithy word: rudimentary. What an affront to the great thinkers of ancient times. Each "daily meditation" is but a tiny drop of water splashing itself into the vast blue sea; nary an impact, nary a difference. Would not recommend. ...

    I have to admit I wasn't reading this every day, I also started it in April, so I have missed a couple of months, I also skipped some days by just completely forgetting about this book, sometimes even weeks. However, some of the quotes and analysis of them were quite relatable, some...

    I bought this book in hopes to get a modern take of stoic philosophy. The book is intended to start on January 1st which is slightly distracting but that's neither here nor there. Each passage has a snippet of a classic stoic philosopher and a few paragraphs on how that particular snip...

    This book is meant to be read one day at a time, but I couldn?t help but go through it over the course of a couple of weeks. Emotional stability is something that?s of the utmost importance if you want to make the best decisions in your life. I find that the stoic philosophy lends ...

    This was the first book I began in 2018, and the last I finished. The one I read the most consistently, yet took all year to finish. The Daily Stoic is a collection of 365 entries, each with a long quotation from a Stoic philosopher and 1-2 paragraphs of explanation and analysis. Th...

    Great book to reflect on important topics of life. This is great to walk your way through the stoic philosophy and practice its teaching every day with a new reflection, if you practice doing the exercise and start really questioning your life and the world around you can benefit i...

    A life changing book that I read a page a day. I'm now on my second loop. ...

    I have read this book more or less with regard to the date as author originally intended ? one piece of stoic wisdom per day. As one of the great stoic, Seneca, recommends ? "Of all people only those are at leisure who make time for philosophy, only they truly live.", I tried to fi...

    What the author has done is to compile quotes from great Stoics (mostly Marcus Aurelius, Seneca and Epictetus) and try to make it relevant to the common reader by making cringeworthy references to Chuck Palahniuk or other modern figures and extremely shallow commentary. This book i...

    Couldn?t recommend this enough. This is one New Years resolution that I?ll be forever thankful I picked up. Over the course of the last year these daily devotionals have managed to change the way I look at the world ever so slightly and have opened my mind to a new life philosophy....

    Started reading this with the new year and stopped today. It was frustratingly repetitive, with only 2 or 3 ideas said over and over again in different ways by different people. ...

    Can't believe it has been a year since I bought this book and read it daily. This is an excellent book, which I keep next to my bed and read before I sleep or as soon as I wake up to get me started on the right foot. The daily entries are insightful, impactful and concise. I'd definite...

    An excellent, practical series of meditations drawing on Stoic philosophy that guide everyday living in the modern world. Surprisingly relevant. Occasionally, the application of Stoic philosophy seemed to be drawing a long bow but, overall, beneficial advice. Much better than some of t...

    I am glad to have this handy book which was a wonderful introduction to Stoic philosophy. Many people may think that philosophy isn't very relevant because it deals with big abstract questions that don't seem to have firm solutions. Well, Stoic philosophy is different. It is completely...

    So disappointed in this book. Stoicism isn't for this emotional artist. ...

    I added ?read stoic quote? to my todoist daily list so it will take a year to read this book. That?s how it?s supposed to be read. But at 30% read the horrific realisation hit me that the year is basically a third DONE and I haven?t done anything! Also a coincidence that by...

    I pulled The Daily Stoic out of my tsundoku pile a few weeks ago and am so glad I finally cracked it open! Featuring a daily quote from Stoic philosophers (think Marcus Aurelius), each page offers a different concept to chew on. Monthly themes?clarity, pragmatism, virtue and kindness...

    I liked this a lot. Quotes from the famous Stoics, with limited but useful commentary (the quotations generally speak for themselves). It was an excellent daily reminder of how to properly view the world, and served as a nice primer to Stoic thought. As an aside: this is actually th...

    Excellent stoic ideas from Seneca, Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, Zeno, Cato. The Bible for any modern stoic. The book contains examples from modern history when explaining ancient stoic concepts and stoic quotes. A nice book in today's world. Recommended for young and old, irrelevant whe...

    A wonderful book of daily meditations steeped in the stoic tradition that are split into three different sections, based on months throughout the year. It was a marvelous year long read. And one that I plan to do repeatedly. ...

    A really great introduction to Stoic philosophy! The authors did a great job at making the old texts accessible by using current day language and adding their own interpretations. The format of one topic/quote per day is very well suited for an introduction to the philosophy. It ...

    I?ve read this book already but i still read it everyday. It serves as a book vitamin to me. ? It helps me have a positive attitude when i?m feeling down. ? It gives me a whole a new perspective. ? It helps open my mind and help me understand things. ? It helps me fi...

    Read it in just under 6 weeks, rather than a year. Some days are repetitive, but then again so is life, since lessons tend to be repeated until learnt. But as the conclusion says, theory is easy, practice is hard (and never-ending). ___ Stoicism in a nutshell: Virtue (four cardinal v...

    The meditations are so short that they cannot satisfy my daily thirst. However, because the texts are not tightly connected, "reading" quickly on one-go feels like drinking too many different beverages at the same time; soon you lose your feeling. What this book did do is to re-awaken...

    I am a fan of some of Marcus Aurelius' writing so I bought this book looking forward to discovering other ancient Stoic writers. Instead, I found mostly the interpretations of the editor with just small snippets from the Stoic greats. Sometimes it's hard to find the Stoic quotes amidst...

    It's perfect for it's purpose, a daily dip into stoic wisdom. Those who rated it one star are judging against a standard it's not attempting to meet. The author does not claim to give the best translations, only accessible ones. I'm probably going to end up buying this and reading ...

    This was a really good collection of quotes from Stoic philosophers such as Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, and Epictetus and daily meditations from the authors Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman. I read two meditations a day from December 2016 to July 2017. I enjoyed learning from the wisdom...

    This book is seriously life changing. I couldn't imagine my life without it. I'm on my second, going on a third (surely not the last one) loop. ...

    Stoicism is an ancient philosophy. It asserts that virtue (meaning self-control, courage, justice, and wisdom) is happiness. To achieve virtue, and thus live happily, one must master the three Stoic disciplines: perceptions (how you see and understand the world), actions (how you act b...

    In one pithy word: rudimentary. What an affront to the great thinkers of ancient times. Each "daily meditation" is but a tiny drop of water splashing itself into the vast blue sea; nary an impact, nary a difference. Would not recommend. ...

    I bought this book in hopes to get a modern take of stoic philosophy. The book is intended to start on January 1st which is slightly distracting but that's neither here nor there. Each passage has a snippet of a classic stoic philosopher and a few paragraphs on how that particular snip...

    This book is meant to be read one day at a time, but I couldn?t help but go through it over the course of a couple of weeks. Emotional stability is something that?s of the utmost importance if you want to make the best decisions in your life. I find that the stoic philosophy lends ...

    This was the first book I began in 2018, and the last I finished. The one I read the most consistently, yet took all year to finish. The Daily Stoic is a collection of 365 entries, each with a long quotation from a Stoic philosopher and 1-2 paragraphs of explanation and analysis. Th...

    Great book to reflect on important topics of life. This is great to walk your way through the stoic philosophy and practice its teaching every day with a new reflection, if you practice doing the exercise and start really questioning your life and the world around you can benefit i...

    A life changing book that I read a page a day. I'm now on my second loop. ...

    I have read this book more or less with regard to the date as author originally intended ? one piece of stoic wisdom per day. As one of the great stoic, Seneca, recommends ? "Of all people only those are at leisure who make time for philosophy, only they truly live.", I tried to fi...

    What the author has done is to compile quotes from great Stoics (mostly Marcus Aurelius, Seneca and Epictetus) and try to make it relevant to the common reader by making cringeworthy references to Chuck Palahniuk or other modern figures and extremely shallow commentary. This book i...

    Can't believe it has been a year since I bought this book and read it daily. This is an excellent book, which I keep next to my bed and read before I sleep or as soon as I wake up to get me started on the right foot. The daily entries are insightful, impactful and concise. I'd definite...

    An excellent, practical series of meditations drawing on Stoic philosophy that guide everyday living in the modern world. Surprisingly relevant. Occasionally, the application of Stoic philosophy seemed to be drawing a long bow but, overall, beneficial advice. Much better than some of t...

    I am glad to have this handy book which was a wonderful introduction to Stoic philosophy. Many people may think that philosophy isn't very relevant because it deals with big abstract questions that don't seem to have firm solutions. Well, Stoic philosophy is different. It is completely...

    So disappointed in this book. Stoicism isn't for this emotional artist. ...

    I added ?read stoic quote? to my todoist daily list so it will take a year to read this book. That?s how it?s supposed to be read. But at 30% read the horrific realisation hit me that the year is basically a third DONE and I haven?t done anything! Also a coincidence that by...

    I pulled The Daily Stoic out of my tsundoku pile a few weeks ago and am so glad I finally cracked it open! Featuring a daily quote from Stoic philosophers (think Marcus Aurelius), each page offers a different concept to chew on. Monthly themes?clarity, pragmatism, virtue and kindness...
