Pigliucci, Massimo (2017) How To Be A Stoic Ancient Wisdom for Modern Living, London: Penguin Random House

As the title suggests this book has a lot to offer to us today. The emphasis is on not trying to control the world but to put our energy and focus into what we can effect which is our response to the world as we find it. It also outlines core values which can promote greater contentment in life. Finally there are, among other thing, practical exercises and meditations.
