From the team that brought you The Obstacle Is the Way and Ego Is the Enemy, a beautiful daily devotional of Stoic meditations—an instant Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestseller.
Why have history's greatest minds—from George Washington to Frederick the Great to Ralph Waldo Emerson, along with today's top performers from Super Bowl-winning football coaches to CEOs and celebrities—embraced the wisdom of the ancient Stoics? Because they realize that the most valuable wisdom is timeless and that philosophy is for living a better life, not a classroom exercise.
The Daily Stoic offers 366 days of Stoic insights and exercises, featuring all-new translations from the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, the playwright Seneca, or slave-turned-philosopher Epictetus, as well as lesser-known luminaries like Zeno, Cleanthes, and Musonius Rufus. Every day of the year you'll find one of their pithy, powerful quotations, as well as historical anecdotes, provocative commentary, and a helpful glossary of Greek terms.
By following these teachings over the course of a year (and, indeed, for years to come) you'll find the serenity, self-knowledge, and resilience you need to live well.

On a aussi une présentation "saisonnière" car il y a de grands thèmes.
Etant gravement malade, mon quotidien est très compliqué. Assez étonnamment la pensée des grands maîtres du stoïcisme m'aide énormément à tenir le coup, à faire les choses malgré les circonstances. Si on prend la plupart d'entre eux ils étaient touchés par le deuil, la maladie et la douleur. Il est donc normal que ça me parle.
Sans vouloir entrer dans cette pensée complexe, ce livre permet de se faire des piqûres de rappel, nous propose chaque jour de réfléchir sur les concepts de cette pensée qui est vraiment fondée sur la résilience, le fait d'arriver à avoir une vie valable en dépit des circonstances, la rigueur de l'âme.
Je recommande. Je recommande surtout aux personnes malades chroniques car ça aide vraiment à se dépasser.
Les paragraphes sont courts, percutants et vont droit au but. Je n'ai pas pu m'empêcher de lire un "mois" par jour, au lieu d'un "jour" par jour. Je recommande à tout être en recherche de sagesse.
J'ai d'ailleurs du mal à ne lire qu'une page par jour !
Certaines sont certes plus profondes que d'autres, mais dans l'ensemble, le tout pousse à la réflexion.
Je recommande fortement cet ouvrage.

Though they are in English they are firmly aimed at a US audience. They are full of references to Lincoln, Washington and other individuals from the short history of the United States. This is jarring and an annoyance. With a wealth of history to choose from it's a shame that the author was unable to find better common reference points for English speakers.
I have to say the daily musings on both, particularly death completely altered the way I was coping (catastophising) and as a result I saw the diagnosis for what it was, got my head in order and accepted whatever was to come along. After almost a year of treatments, including a full gastrectomy, two lots of chemo and radiotherapy I’m still using the book daily and referring back to it whenever I feel the need.
Ok this is probably an extreme case for a review but for £8, the price of a few coffees, it’s been invaluable. Whatever is round the corner for me in the future who knows but it’s pointless worrying now about it. Buy it if you want some real world perspective on life and your role in it, you won’t be disappointed.
The 366 meditations offer a page a day of stoic wisdom. No complaints so far it's all been good stuff, some has made me think again and been helpful. I think I am going to like stoicism.
The Stoics had the view that life can be very difficult!
Stoicism has just a few central teachings. It sets out to remind us of how unpredictable the world can be. How brief our moment of life is. How to be steadfast, and strong, and in control of yourself. And finally, that the source of our dissatisfaction lies in our impulsive dependency on our reflexive senses rather than logic.
Stoicism doesn’t concern itself with complicated theories about the world, but with helping us overcome destructive emotions and act on what can be acted upon. It’s built for action, not endless debate.
Stoics take time each day to look inwards and reflect on our shortcomings and review how the day went and see if there is anything we could have done better. Doing this daily helps us to refine our habits towards what we really want to do with our lives, pushes us to do more and see obstacles as something to be overcome.
I havent made a huge study of the stoics yet but what I have discovered has been good and is helping me to give life direction and feel a sense of purpose. I already feel more in control and satisfied because of it.
This book is more self-help than all the other self-help books put together. It's not 'preachy' just practical. The format is a ideal. Each day of the year has a quote from a famous Stoic and brief comment on the quote. It doesn't tell you 'do this and that will happen'. It asks you to ask questions of yourself. Two or three minutes reading in the morning and a whole day of thinking. You will get out of this what you put into it. If you're new to Stoicism the views may surprise you. If you're an old hand Stoic it's a great way to start the day.
This book could change your life. To what degree is up to you.
In this book grandads Seneca, Epictetus and grumpy uncle Marcus will give it to you straight. In their day it really was tough.
I read this book everyday and it has been a springboard into further philosophical research, something I’d never have previously considered.
I recommend this book to everyone, it benefited an angry, frustrated misery like me enormously. Imagine what it could do for you.
