This book contains almost everything I know about Stoicism! After spending several years reading, studying and (most importantly) practising Stoicism in my daily life, I've compiled all of my knowledge and put it in writing for all of you.
Introducing Stoic practices into your life is incredibly rewarding, with many tangible benefits. A Stoic attitude has helped me grow a YouTube channel to over 18 million views, conquer challenges of mental and physical strength (detailed in the book) and shift my mindset to view obstacles as opportunities. Stoicism can guide you in every situation and this book aims to provide you with the teaching and techniques you will need to reach your goals. Put simply, this is a guide on how to live a rewarding life.
The book breaks down key concepts from some of the most highly influential Stoic works, written by the most well-known Stoic philosophers of the past. It shows how many of the principals documented are still relevant today and can be used in everyday life.
Stoicism for a Modern World is actually two books. The first focuses on the philosophy itself and how it can help you, the second examines the philosophers and explains their work.
The book includes historical and personal anecdotes with explanations on how Stoic teaching still applies in a more modern, digital context. By following the insights and wisdom contained in this book, you will be shown the self-discipline and self-awareness needed to live well.
I hope you enjoy.
