Stoicism and the Art of Happiness Practical Wisdom for Everyday Life (2018, Teach Yourself)

Review :

I have read the three classic Stoic philosophers (Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus and Seneca) before this book, but I had not really grasped all the Stoic theories and thoughts. This book really got the Stoic message through. It had a lot of quotations from ancient philosophers aswell as modern uses of the philosophy in life and in therapy. It had stuff I really will consider and use in my everyday life.

Although I really enjoyed the book it was kind of repetitive at times, which made for a slow reading. But as my high school teacher always said: 'repetition is the mother of knowledge', so I'll let it pass. I would like to give it 4,5/5 stars, but as you're only able to give full stars, five will do :)
