I'm wondering how this book is different from what stoicism books teach us ? everything you said was deeply thought by stoicus Philosophers like Plato, Aristotle, Epictetus, Seneca and Marcus Aurelius ...
I'm asking just to see if it's worth it to read the book as well.
The author of the book is a huge fan of stoic philosophy and history. Besides writing books he runs a youtube channel called daily stoic. The book mostly communicates the things I learned from it, and a lot more, through anecdotes from history and philosophy from mostly stoic philosophers. It is not a book about stoicism but definitely heavily influenced by it. I hope this helps with you decision. Cheers 😁
suggested, Ryan Holiday is one of the most important contemporary philosophers. If you know stoicism well enough, you might not get a lot of new ideas out of this book, but
I enjoyed them all, particularly this last one. If you click on the links, you can read my summaries on them.
