Where does A Guide to the Good Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Very interesting and very insightful. A great hybrid between philosophy and personal development. Thoroughly recommended.

Would you listen to A Guide to the Good Life again? Why?
Yes, lots of ideas that need to be reiterated in order to fully grasp in a practical way
What about James Patrick Cronin’s performance did you like?
Narration a little spaced apart or something, kindof like it was read by a computer - you get used to it but could have been a bit more fluid.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me think about the way I think and how I perceive life's joys as well as challenges, definitely be implementing some stoic traits
Any additional comments?
Can't wait until they get more of Irvine's books on audible, just don't seem to like old school reading

Great book explaining stoicism in a contemporary way.
It reads very smoothly. Well structured and the author presents the concepts in a way relevant to our days.
I particularly liked the ending when justifies stoicism from an evolutionary point of view. This is a nice contribution of the author.
I also liked the personal experience of the author while practicing stoicism.
Finally it suggests some further reading.
Very interesting book. Accessible. The author makes the points very clear in my opinion.
I like the narrator too. Not too slow (like others I have heard).
Great book. Thanks.

This is a great book, and the narrator fits perfectly. I would recommend this title to any thoughtful friend or family member. I started this book at a real low point, and found this profoundly helpful. Also, unlike most books that offer life advice, the author is clearly a smart, logical individual who thinks carefully about what he says and explains what it is like to put his advice into practice.
