Product description


"In 52 pithy and practicable lessons, Pigliucci and Lopez explain how lessons plucked from an ancient Greco-Roman philosophy can reshape one's sense of self. . . .This successful blend of knowledge and action items will entice readers looking for thoughtful prompts for self-reflection."--Publishers Weekly

"In an age that equates virtue with frenzies of outrage and denunciations of others' failings, A Handbook for New Stoics serves as an inspired self-help cure that, with insight and sympathy, will nudge you in the direction of the happiness and equanimity born of strength of character and wisdom."--Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, author of Plato at the Googleplex and National Humanities Medal recipient

"Massimo Pigliucci and Gregory Lopez have created an engaging practical handbook for those who wish to explore Stoicism and achieve what Zeno called 'a good flow of life.'"--Stephen Hanselman, coauthor of The Daily Stoic and The Daily Stoic Journal

"A wonderfully simple approach to the core concepts and techniques of Stoicism, A Handbook for New Stoics gives readers an easy way to train themselves in Stoic practices, broken down into weekly exercises spanning a whole year. Through this book, Pigliucci and Lopez have managed to make Stoicism accessible to anyone."--Donald Robertson, cognitive-behavioral psychotherapist and author of How to Think Like a Roman Emperor

"A wonderful and potentially life-altering way to encounter the wisdom of the Stoics, A Handbook for New Stoics provides readers with structured lessons and exercises to explore Stoic philosophy alongside the lives they, themselves, are living."--Professor William B. Irvine, author of A Guide to the Good Life

"In this book Pigliucci and Lopez offer a great hands-on introduction to Stoic philosophy and practice while also providing valuable ideas for long-time students of Stoicism. Well-researched and carefully structured with practical exercises that complement ancient texts, A Handbook for New Stoics will guide you through Stoic practice step-by-step throughout the year."--Gregory Sadler, editor of Stoicism Today
