The Master Stoic: Advanced Principles and Theories of Stoicism That Will Transform Your Approach to Life, is written for individuals who want to master the philosophy of Stoicism in their lives. However, before you proceed with this book, it's recommended that you first listen to the beginner's guide, Stoicism: A Beginner's Guide to the Stoic Way of Life. This will allow you an easier understanding of the basic tenets of Stoicism.
In this second book, a more detailed explanation of the doctrines of each of the significant philosophers of Stoicism will be presented, together with practical examples of how you can apply these beliefs in your daily dealings.
It's beneficial for you to learn about philosophy not because it's a sign of erudition but because you can utilize the tenets properly as your guiding principles in your daily life.
What's the use of mastering all the beliefs of these philosophers, but you don't put them into practice? Knowledge becomes power - only - when you use it.
So, thanks again for purchasing this book. Have fun listening and learning!
I found out a lot of new information. This philosophy was founded by Zeno of Citium. As I understood, Stoicism means to live life in the harmony with nature. Stoicism includes Pantheism, Adiaphora, Rational control over passion, etc. Ethics, logic, and physics are the main parts of stoic education. This book also introduces modern tenets based on Stoicism, there are 14 tenets. All in all, this book is informative and full of information.

This book is good for any practicing Stoic in that it adequately examines the teachings of famous Stoics and provides suggestions on how to apply them to everyday life. However, the steps are somewhat ambiguous, and instead of guiding the reader through the process of mastering their Stoicism, it provides them with a list of steps to complete. I don’t quite like the “Do these magic steps and you’ll be happy” aspect to books like this. For such a practical philosophy, surely there is an equally practical way to lead readers to their highest potential.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in reading about and potentially obtaining a day-to-day mindful philosophy. Adopting Stoicism within my daily life has affected me in many profound ways, as Stoicism has changed the way I have thought about the world and humanity as a whole. In short, get the book and see for yourself if you can at least get some good out of it!
Interesting topic about the philosphy of Stoicism. The beliefs and doctrines it has in such a long peroid of time became adaptable in human race. It was written in place of easy to contemplate words. A very valuable book to have.
This was a great book. Easy to read and will lots of information that really helped me understand the topic. I like the clickable table of contents so I can skip around to reread my favorite parts.
It's valuable for you to find out about rationality not on the grounds that it's an indication of savviness but rather on the grounds that you can use the fundamentals legitimately as your controlling standards in your day by day life. Lastly, that the wellspring of our disappointment lies in our indiscreet reliance on our reflexive faculties as opposed to logic.This is an awesome book at any point seen .
Stoicism is a great adventure guide. If you want to learn more about Stoicism then you can read thia book. My friend very happy with this book. Definitely recommend for a life changing book. I enjoyed this book immensely.
I believe this book has the potential to positively change many areas of one's life.I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about Stoicism, both modern and ancient. Great read!
