I read this book in one go on the plane from Los Angeles to Brisbane. I really loved it. Well researched and written with lot of inspiring stories. As entrepreneurs and business people, we all face a lot of challenges and obstacles every day and developing our thinking about how we approach them is essential. This is the best book I've read about this topic specifically and I certainly highly recommend reading it to everyone, regardless if you are business or not.
Very good book. The title of the book explains the exact concepts. Thinking about problems that occur in life as something that may be beneficial in the future is something that I had never thought of before
Consider this book the bible of stoic philosophy and thinking. There is simply no better introductorry book on the topic and on completion, you'll acquire the knowledge and wisdom that will help you overcome any obstacle that happens to present itself. Buy it and thank me later!!
I have read it once, and plan on reading it at least a couple more times. It is quite short, but has a lot of hidden depth to it. Since reading it a couple of months ago, I have found it has really changed the way that I think about the world and my situation. It could really be twice as long and offer more concrete examples, but still, it is a great book and well worth reading.
This book is a great guide to the stoic approach to handling life's challenges. It goes beyond the self help platitudes, providing a structured guide to think about and apply to your own life. Lots of great historic examples too!
Recommend for those wanting to improve their application of will towards a goal, or even if you just want to be able to handle the stresses of everyday life more gracefully.
