It’s not everyday that you read something that undoubtedly alters your perspective on life. This book did just that.
Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations is an incredible read full of timeless wisdom from one of most known names in Stoicism. Despite the fact that his writing took place in the 2nd century, the knowledge and teachings that Aurelius shares with himself in this “diary” are more than applicable in modern society. The principles covered by the former Roman emperor offer some of the best advice when it comes to living a just life, overcoming everyday struggles, and even managing the highest levels of success. I’ll definitely be reading this one again!
If you’re going to pick up this book, I highly recommend grabbing the version titled “A New Translation” as it is regarded as one of the best translations, per the reviews.
