"An immense dose of Epictetus would do us all a great deal of good, and I am grateful (beyond irony) to Tom Wolfe for reviving Epictetus" - Harold Bloom.
So what makes the writings of this former slave so powerful today?
Epictetus observed that although everyday life is fraught with difficulty, a life of virtue is within reach.
He dedicated his life to outlining the simple way to happiness, fulfillment, and tranquility.
By putting into practice the 93 witty, wise, and razor-sharp instructions that make up "The Art of Living", readers learn to gracefully meet the challenges of everyday life as well as life's inevitable major losses and disappointments.
