Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Manual For Living Manual For Living is a powerful little book. A few years ago when I was going through a difficult period in my life, this book helped me more than any other book available to me at the time. Essentially it servers as a potent reminder that life unfolds according to a plan that we often cannot understand as we are going through it. And the person who is wise will understand that, accept this unfolding of our lives and then see the opportunities that present themselves along the way. Epictetus was a former Roman slave who became one of the greatest stoic philosophers. His insights are very practical and have great value to any seeking a life of greater wisdom, serenity and inner peace. I encourage you to take this book around with you as much as possible, flip through it so that Epictetus’ philosophy becomes a part of the way that you live.
