Description


Perennial wisdom on how best to live with serenity and joy in a thoroughly contemporary and delightfully pragmatic new adaptation. "Wise as a grandfather, earthly as the Tao."-- Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart

About the Author


Epictetus (circa 55-135 ce) taught in Rome until the year 94 ce, when Emperor Domitian banished philosophers from the city. In exile, he established a school of philosophy where his distinguished students included Marcus Aurelius, author of Meditations. Some 1,863 years after Epictetus's death, Tom Wolfe revived his philosophy in the bestselling novel A Man in Full.



Sharon Lebell is a philosophical writer and musician who lives in Northern California. She also produced Epictetus's A Manual for Living.
