I like it a lot. Some of the advice given is still very useful, especially the passages pertaining to seizing the day, living life to the fullest, and being a man. I sometimes read some verses before doing something I am trepidatious about.
I read it, I honestly don't think there's anything to gain from it that you can't just wikiquote. The only stuff you miss is in no way applicable to you. I'd go as far to say that it's only around because it makes neat quotes for Reddit.
Well I bought it in February of 2015 after seeing it mentioned in the School of Life video on Stoicsim.
It got ruined by the rain in May of 2015, after I'd finished it. (I carried it around in my backpack to make myself feel better whenever).
After putting it off, I decided to order a new copy in August. I get the book, but don't read it.
I end up giving it to my aunt's close friend, as I saw she needed it more than I did.
She posts quotes from it on Facebook, and messages me with mentions of the book. I guess it's a really powerful book judging by its ability to make people feel better.
I like it a lot.
that reminds me... I gotta start rereading it sometime, it's one of those books that you can keep around and read a little bit here, a little bit there. One of my favorite books, it's really dense in wisdom, compiled from his journal entries I think, so there's no real structure to the chapters
It's a work with incredibly valuable ideas which can help in times of stress, but it's also very easy to read and understand, and I'm sure some people dislike it just for that reason.
