  • I've been reading Lessons in Stoicism. . . Now, I don't normally read philosophy, but I think old Seneca was right.

    Liz Jones, Mail on Sunday
  • An enlightening explanation of how Stoic philosophy can help us in our lives. . . It can put us in control of our feelings, help us in adversity and guide us in our relationships with others. Sellars is ideally placed to offer these lessons in Stoicism as teacher, scholar and as a founding member of the group that teaches living like a Stoic for a week

    Professor Sir Richard Sorabji
  • Expertly and vividly John Sellars presents lessons in Stoicism that are strikingly relevant to modern life. From the great Roman Stoic authors he distills teaching on managing emotions, dealing with adversity, facing death, and making the best use of every hour and situation. This is a book that excellently shows why Stoicism is the philosophy for our time. I recommend it with enthusiasm

    Professor A. A. Long, author of Epictetus: How to be Free
  • Excellent. . . Sellars gives a lucid, easy-to-follow account of what Stoicism as a way of life amounts to, and how you might start to put it into practice. . . To cover so much ground without merely skimming the surface requires real skill as a writer

    Nigel Warburton, author of A Little History of Philosophy
  • Accessible and absorbing
