9780062513229: The Art of Living

Epictetus was born into slavery about 55 ce in the eastern outreaches of the Roman Empire. Once freed, he established an influential school of Stoic philosophy, stressing that human beings cannot control life, only their responses to it. By putting into practice the ninety-three witty, wise, and razor-sharp instructions that make up The Art of Living, readers learn to meet the challenges of everyday life successfully and to face life's inevitable losses and disappointments with grace.

Review:

“A treasury of eternally good advice, wise as a grandfather, earthy as the Tao.” (Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart)

“The message of Epictetus is as vital today as it ever was.” (Jacob Needleman, author of The Heart of Philosophy)

“Epictetus sounds like the Buddha, and Sharon Lebell’s voice makes him sound like the delightful man next door.” (Sylvia Boorstein, author of It's Easier Than You Think)

From the Author:

Timeless lessons for Living the Best Possible Life
Reading the deceptively simple teachings of Epictetus is like discovering buried treasure. Let's face it: everyday life, no matter what our personal circumstances are, is fraught with difficulty. So, what are we going to do about it? This book has real answers. When all is said and done, there are only two important questions: how does one be a good person and how does one live a good life. Epictetus, the great 1st century sage, gives clear and practical answers to these questions in this primer for living the best possible life. I have long believed that philosophy, if it's to be of any use, needs to be made accessible in plain, down-to-earth language. It was my mission to make this great philosopher's ideas available to regular people like myself, so that they can be easily grasped and put to use in everyday life.I hope that Epictetus' helpful guidance, which so utterly changed my own life for the better, will inspire and provide solace to the large audience of readers his brilliant thought deserves.
