5 Reasons Stoicism Is Better Than Everything (Audiobook)

I just wanted to make sure that people knew that 5 Reasons Stoicism Is Better Than Everything is on Audible, ACX, and iTunes. I think hearing my book read by Carrie Burgess sounds much better than when I sub-vocalize it in book form. It’s a little more than an hour audio.

You can also get 5 Reasons Stoicism Is Better Than Everything in Kindle or paperback.
