There are a lot of translations of the Meditations out there and most of them are very difficult to read. This is because the translators are doing their best to provide the reader with a translation that is faithful to the original language, which was, I believe, Ancient Greek (which seems kind of odd, considering he was a Roman).

Of the three translations that I struggled with, this is probably the most coherent. I am not an ancient Greek scholar so I can't testify to the accuracy of the translation but I can tell you that, of all the three English translations that I looked at, this one came off as the most coherent --- which, in retrospect, is really not saying much because some of it was still pretty rough going, especially near the end of the book. Nevertheless, if you want to become familiar with this particular stoic philosophy, I would probably start with this one and save yourself a lot of aggravation.

The Meditations is one of my favorite books of all time --- one that I read when I was a young student studying philosophy. It was a pleasure to reread Marcus Aurelius and I am convinced that he is a philosopher that everybody should read. The problem is that none of the translations appear to be very easy to navigate.

Poignant wise counsel to both those early in life as well as individuals of years who need the reminder of how the complications of life are distracting.

I'm just starting to get into the stoic philosophy (at least in terms of reading about it) and these is an excellent place to start.

I've read "The Meditations" before, partly in the original Latin.. It's an extraordinary read that I urge all to pursue..
