Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This book is the result of nearly twenty years of research on Stoicism and its relevance to the psychological challenges of modern life.  I was inspired to write it when my daughter kept asking me to tell her more and more stories about ancient philosophy.  I realized that the best way to learn about Stoicism is through the examples provided by the lives of ancient Stoics such as Marcus Aurelius.  In this book, I've combined stories from the life of Marcus Aurelius, based on extensive research using the surviving Roman histories of his reign, with insights and practical guidance found in his famous notebook, known as The Meditations.  I also drew on my experience as a cognitive-behavioural therapist and trainer to present Stoic techniques in a way that could be put into practice by modern readers.  Chapters deal with topics such as coping with unhealthy desires, pain and illness, worry and anxiety, anger, and loss.  The Meditations is already a classic but I realized that people could be helped to get twice as much benefit from the wisdom it contains by learning more about the man who wrote it and the Stoic concepts and techniques he found so valuable in overcoming the challenges he faced as Roman Emperor.

About the Author

Donald Robertson is a writer, trainer, and cognitive psychotherapist.  He is the author of six books and dozens of articles on philosophy and psychotherapy.  He specializes in evidence-based approaches to the treatment of anxiety and in the relationship between ancient philosophy and modern psychotherapy.  He is one of the founding members of the Modern Stoicism organization and has been involved in teaching and writing about Stoicism, and its relevance today, for nearly twenty years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very engaging read
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 21, 2020
Initially bought it on Audible and was impressed. Though you can get the raw Stoic philosophy of Marcus from his own passages in “The Meditations”, what author does so well here is weave in the context and incidents that demonstrated it. I had listened to it twice on audible and with Father’s Day nearing this was the obvious choice of the book to buy him. I ended up also buying another copy as I can see myself reading it again and also sharing with friends and family.
