Epictetus was born into slavery about 55 ce in the eastern outreaches of the Roman Empire. Once freed, he established an influential school of Stoic philosophy, stressing that human beings cannot control life, only their responses to it. By putting into practice the ninety-three witty, wise, and razor-sharp instructions that make up "The Art of Living," readers learn to meet the challenges of everyday life successfully and to face life's inevitable losses and disappointments with grace.

Industry Reviews

"A treasury of eternally good advice, wise as a grandfather, earthy as the Tao." -- Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart "The message of Epictetus is as vital today as it ever was." -- Jacob Needleman, author of The Heart of Philosophy "Epictetus sounds like the Buddha, and Sharon Lebell's voice makes him sound like the delightful man next door." -- Sylvia Boorstein, author of It's Easier Than You Think
