This is a modern rendition of Epictetus' classic work, The Handbook, or Enchiridion. It answers the question, "How can we be good and live free and happy, no matter what's happening around us?" It is a concise summary of the teachings of Epictetus, as transcribed by his illustrious student, Flavius Arrian.

Epictetus, the great Stoic philosopher, was born around 55 CE in Hierapolis (present day Pamukkale, Turkey). Epictetus means 'slave' or 'acquired'. It is said that his parents sold him to Epaphroditos, a wealthy freedman and secretary to Nero. Eventually, Epictetus became a freedman himself and began to teach his philosophy.

This widely acclaimed modern rendition by Dr. Chuck Chakrapani brings ancient concepts to modern life.
