Read the thoughts of the emperor influenced by the greatest ancient philosophers
Never out of print, the classic for those interested in stoic philosophy. Forget “mindfulness” and all that modern recycled rot. Read the thoughts of the emperor influenced by the greatest ancient philosophers.

Classic book
I’m a sucker for good history books and love reading classics by Roman and Greek writers. Had to download Marcus afer reading Vitruvious’s 10 Books on Architecture.

An excellent translation
This is a brilliant translation. I gave up on the first one I downloaded because the translation was so appalling. This translationis excellent and very readable.

Its probably good n'all but man is so beloved by those bad meffs who are …Its probably good n'all but man is so beloved by those bad meffs who are into joe rogan (no relation), tim ferris and the sort of weapons at work who send round 'i read this really great thing on linkedin' and talk like they literally learned how to talk from a ted talk thats its getting a wide swerve from me.literally the worst people.


Marcus Aurelius was renowned for being extraordinarily just, and fair, and worked for the betterment of his people. The reason why his writings are often mentioned is because, before him, the Stoic writings were obtuse and difficult to absorb without rigorous study. He had the benefit of an education which emphasised the study of Stoicism, and wrote his Meditations as a series of personal reminders. He never intended for them to be published and distributed, but they were found to be so well written, and to distill Stoicism into such an easily understood form, that his writings are still so well regarded today.
My profession used to require me to spend a lot of time waiting around at Court, and I always used to take his Meditations with me to read while I waited. It's genuinely useful and interesting stuff.

Just because a few idiots enjoy chocolate, don't let that stop you from enjoying chocolate yourself 😁

Bit of stretch to write-off a deal for a free book of wisdom because you’re irritated by some of the readers lol.

Stoic philosophy, like many things, has some great tools for life.
