    E–pub/E–book (How tobe a Stoic) 37 starsIt is uite a good book but with the same breath I want to say it better be after borrowing so much from its predecessors I enjoyed particularly the illustrating stories from author's life although they did not match A Guide to the Good Life The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy and from lives of modern day Stoics In terms of clarity of thinking and ability to move beyond just repeating the wisdom of the ancients the book definitely lacked

Men who made these discoveries before us are not our masters bur our guides Truth lies open for all it has not yet been monopolized Seneca uoted in Pigliucci s How to Be a StoicFor me the book was a bit too superficial on Stoicism and focused too much on the author s personal journey In some ways this book reminds me a bit of Robert Wright s Why Buddhism is True The Science and Philosophy of Meditation and Enlightenment EXCEPT I think Wright s analysis and wrting were both better It makes me sad because I wanted so much to like this book My personal philosophy of life seems to swing a bit between the Stoicism of Marcus Aurelius and the Epicureanism of Lucretius So perhaps I m a Stoic and work and an Epicurean at home Or maybe I m a Stoic during the day and an Epicurean at night Anyway perhaps the book missed its target with me because I wanted a deeper dive into Stoicism but paired with a deeper dive into the conflicts between Stocism and Modernity My final major critiue is while I enjoyed the major structureorganization of the book He divides the book into four sections The first three are the three disciplines of stoicism 1 Desire 2 Action and 3 Assent In the final and fourth section of the book Pigliucci gives us a dozen selected spiritual excercises to get the reader started on their way to becoming a good student of Stoicism and as good a person as the reader can be My problem lies in the awkward path Pigliucci uses He choses Epicetetus to be his Virgil ok I m game but then literally pretends to be having conversations mid narrative with Epicetetusit was at this point during our conversation that I realized what Epicetetus was telling me had countless applications in my own life In theory I get what Pigliucci was trying to do but it came off awkward and a bit forced and kind of silly At least I m positive that the three stars aren t going to cause Pigliucci any pain He s a Stoic He s got the tools to survive my three starslight One fascinating conflict would be Bill Clinton s well known love of Marcus Aurelius Meditations While it is certainly possible that Clinton reads Meditations yearly After eight years as President Clinton is not the President most would pick to exemplify a modern stoic philosopher king

I hadn t read about stoicism before yet it puts so well in words many of my life philosophies and practices Especially those hard for me to explain Like being ready to lose anything or anyone and caring about them at the same time Or that I don t have to be a robot to stay calm if events are out of my controlThe idea that living a good life depends on understanding both how the world and human s reasoning work is severely underrepresented in self help and philosophy literature I ve come to it via experience or reading on behavioral psychology Understanding of how our brains and the world work is the central piece in stoicism and I loved it for thatI found the book to be a decent introduction to stoicism Ample historical context led to the main points explained with philosophical uotes from the original Greek Roman stoics their words interpreted to mere mortals language Every now and then there were personal examples that felt like preaching to the choir people with different behavior or moral views may not relate to staying calm amidst military coups or avoiding fine diningThe How To aspect of the book also deserves some attention it s in the title it must be important I doubt it s humanly possible to effectively explain how to change one s life philosophy in a short book though Massimo Pigliucci tried There are some exercises and ideas what to do They all sound really hard to accomplish for those outside of the already practicing stoics Of course I would love to be wrong let me know if the advice in the book turned you into anything close to a stoic How to Be a Stoic taught me a bit about stoicism and I will be reading for sure
