    Daily Telegraph
  • "A good case for the enduring relevance of 2,000-year-old precepts"

    TIMES HIGHER EDUCATION SUPPLEMENT
  • "In this thought-provoking book, Massimo Pigliucci shares his journey of discovering the power of Stoic practices in a philosophical dialogue with one of Stoicism's greatest teachers."

  • "Excellent"

    Oliver Burkeman, The Guardian
  • "As its title suggests, How to Be a Stoic is a how-to book, but one of a very high order. Yes, Massimo Pigliucci gives his readers advice on how to live a happy and meaningful life. He is careful, though, to put a secure foundation under that advice by explaining who the ancient Stoics were and how they arrived at the conclusions they did. Do you want to avoid wasting the one life you have to live? Read this book!"
