The Ultimate Stoic Reading List

The Ultimate Stoic Reading List

About the Episode 

In this episode of the podcast, I share my top 5 recommendations of where to start with your Stoic reading. Also, head to the link below to find my ultimate list of books on Stoicism and links to where you can buy them.


I tend to recommend that people start with the classics. By starting at the source of our understanding of Stoicism you'll be able to get a clear picture of exactly how the Stoics thought and what they taught.

My 5 recommendations are: 

1 - Letters from a Stoic by Seneca

2 - On the Shortness of Life by Seneca

3 - Meditations by Marcus Aurelius 

4 - Discourses and Selected Writings by Epictetus

5 - The Art of Living by Epictetus (Translation by Sharon Lebell)


Please reach out to me if you know of any books that you think should be on the list.
