I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Though giving a good description of stoicism, there are some nuggets of advice that are pretty difficult to follow. This includes the comparison of a family to a pot.
There are some good maxims that society nowadays would be worth living by, including #5, #8 and #30, among others, but for the most part, it would be pretty difficult to follow all of Epictetus's advice.
