5.0 out of 5 stars Being Better Provides the Path to Being Better
Reviewed in the United States on 7 July 2021
The teachings of Stoicism have never been more important and relevant than they are today. In a divisive world, we are reminded of the importance of good character, acting virtuously, building community and of the responsibility to our ourselves, our community and to the world we live in.

The authors convey the teachings of Zeno, Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus, Musonius Rufus and Cato in a way that is easily understandable and relatable, even to those new to Stoicism. This wonderful work brings a 2000-year-old philosophy into the 21st century and provides examples of how we can apply the Stoic teachings to our lives today.

It is not a book filled with life hacks that teach one to make more money, gain more friends or to make one’s life easier. Instead, we are invited to embark on a journey to deeper insight into who we are, the intentions of our actions, and whether our intentions and actions align so that we may live a virous life.
Being Better not only provides a path to the journey of being better; it also reminds us that life is not just about us. We are invited to “build a set of shoulders others can stand on”.
