Product description

Review

"A treasury of eternally good advice, wise as a grandfather, earthy as the Tao."--Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart

"Epictetus sounds like the Buddha, and Sharon Lebell's voice makes him sound like the delightful man next door."--Sylvia Boorstein, author of It's Easier Than You Think

"The message of Epictetus is as vital today as it ever was."--Jacob Needleman, author of The Heart of Philosophy

About the Author

Epictetus (circa 55-135 ce) taught in Rome until the year 94 ce, when Emperor Domitian banished philosophers from the city. In exile, he established a school of philosophy where his distinguished students included Marcus Aurelius, author of Meditations. Some 1,863 years after Epictetus's death, Tom Wolfe revived his philosophy in the bestselling novel A Man in Full.
