Reviews

Lessons in Stoicism distils key Stoic tenets, insofar as they can help contemporary readers, into under 100 small pages. Sellars achieves the task he sets himself admirably. In elegant, economical prose, he urges us to become better, happier people by focusing on rational decision-making
*Guardian*

Accessible and absorbing
*Scotsman*

An enlightening explanation of how Stoic philosophy can help us in our lives. . . It can put us in control of our feelings, help us in adversity and guide us in our relationships with others. Sellars is ideally placed to offer these lessons in Stoicism as teacher, scholar and as a founding member of the group that teaches living like a Stoic for a week
*Professor Sir Richard Sorabji*

Expertly and vividly John Sellars presents lessons in Stoicism that are strikingly relevant to modern life. From the great Roman Stoic authors he distills teaching on managing emotions, dealing with adversity, facing death, and making the best use of every hour and situation. This is a book that excellently shows why Stoicism is the philosophy for our time. I recommend it with enthusiasm
*Professor A. A. Long, author of Epictetus: How to be Free*

Excellent. . . Sellars gives a lucid, easy-to-follow account of what Stoicism as a way of life amounts to, and how you might start to put it into practice. . . To cover so much ground without merely skimming the surface requires real skill as a writer
*Nigel Warburton, author of A Little History of Philosophy*
