   Lessons from Epictetus
This is one of Stoicism's essential books. Of the three Stoic philosophers I was introduced to, Marcus Aurelius, Seneca and Epictetus, Epictetus is the one who speaks most clearly to me. He speaks to me and makes sense to me. His words make you think and go to the gist of the principle or idea of the principle. Today, 2000 years after he said them, I can apply his lessons to my life and the world I live in. When my thoughts are muddled and my thinking is unclear and irrational, his words show me where to go for clarity and rational thinking. This is one of my go-to books that I will now keep with me and in the future.
   Customer run around
The book was excited to read, but the pages were stuck together at the bottom. Without tearing, you could not pull apart. I contacted the seller about returning sent pics, kept telling me that they could not see the pics, like they gave me the run around. All I wanted to return is to get new and return. After a few times of running around I just quit. Sending back through Amazon.
   Thank you PewDiePie
Bought this book after PewDiePie recommended it for the first book club in 2021. Looking forward to reading it, learning about philosophy and hearing what he has to say about it at the end of the month. His explanations of philosophical concepts are very interesting and easy to understand, and have made me very interested in learning more about the subject, Hello fellow 19-year-olds!! AOOUUHH! AOOUUHH! Floor Gang Gang AOOUUHH! ! !
   The Way of Epictetus
I wish I had discovered this book years ago. Where I go, this book will always be with me. It is a book not only to read, but also to practice. Read it again and again. A perfect companion for life. I added this to Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman as '' books I will always keep with me . Modern self-help books, throw away modern self-help books. Get this instead.
   Good read
My teenage son asked specifically for this book for Christmas and was thrilled when he unwrapped it. It is exactly what he expected and is very happy with it.
   Thankful for this book
Amazingly Amazing. I'm a new Stoic practicing. The topics presented in this book are surprisingly relevant to modern life and me personally. The central goal involves the freedom of the mind from external influences, resulting in inner tranquility, awareness and control. I also did not know about it before purchasing, but this book contains the full enchridion in the back.
   a great translation for a great book
Fantastic and very readable translation of this stoic work. As always, the bigger difficulty is in trying to live it out.
   Humanity haven't changed much, and the lessons ought to be learned ~1900 years ago are still important for us
A great book to read is just a book to read. After Marcus Aurelius and Seneca, I had to give Epictetus the due respect and read his work as well. This translation is very easy to read book include a few extras of Ancient Roman writings and a wonderful intro and summary of epictetus life includes Stoicism and Epictetus. Recommending this book to whomever wants to improve himself as a human being.
   Another Path to Mindfulness
My mentor, Lee Thayer, spoke carefully about choosing your parents. While one can not choose their biological parents, they can choose those influencing their lives. One of these parents is Epictetus. His thoughts and ideas are today as relevant as they were 1800 years ago, when they were shared with Buddha and the Stoics, as well as with Epictetus and his followers.
