Meet the Author

Epictetus (circa 55-135 ce) taught in Rome until the year 94 ce, when Emperor Domitian banished philosophers from the city. In exile, he established a school of philosophy where his distinguished students included Marcus Aurelius, author of Meditations. Some 1,863 years after Epictetus's death, Tom Wolfe revived his philosophy in the bestselling novel A Man in Full.

Sharon Lebell is a philosophical writer and musician who lives in Northern California. She also produced Epictetus's A Manual for Living.

    The best vision is insight

    It's hard to believe that a book so thin could offer so much. This is a profoundly insightful and thought-provoking book that I can't wait to offer my highschool students. It speaks to timeless, universal values and insights that would serve anyone interested in embarking upon a conscious and fulfilling life journey.

    To start on Epictetus

    This was a great introduction on Epictetus' philosophy, written in simple languages

    Enjoyable book of wisdom

    A better title for this book would probably be 'Art of Living: Reading Epictetus', by Lebell. Other than that, I'd say the text, while not being a direct translation, is close to the original. Overall, I'd say this is a very good book; something thought-provoking for sure.

    I think I expected more

    It's not terrible, but it's pretty much like every other "rules for living" book up to and including "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff." "Art of Living" was recommended in another book I was reading on ADHD. Sad to say, no great words of wisdom - or at least no new words of wisdom imparted here.
