Really interesting- the more things change the more they stay the same!
Lots of references to things/people/Gds that can be hard to follow but the gems still shine through. Very worthwhile.

Age old wisdom , each and every world valid till this very present time .Many of the teachings correlate with Gita and Swami Vivekananda's teachings!

There is so much wisdom to be found in Senecas letters! I recommend to anyone that is interested in stoic philosophy!

As I've been reading this, I find the letters of Seneca very appropriate to our modern times and wish I'd read them when I was 30 years younger.

Philosophy as is should be. A guide to right living with real examples. Agree with everything which is highly unusual for me.

This book is spectacular, but advertised as containing audio version as well. The end of the book has a chapter called "Link to free audio recording of Seneca's Letters." The chapter just says "The Letters of Seneca," with no link. The text is not live either, so it's not like you touch it and it goes to the link in question.

I got this book after hearing people rave about the Stoic philosophy. Seneca's letters are witty and entertaining while also subtly outlining how to put the Stoic ideas into practical use. This is a book that I will keep forever. One of the best books I have read in ages.
