I enjoyed this book so much. It has an excellent introduction that sets you up for what to expect in the book. The interesting thing about this book is the author wrote the book to himself, a ‘note to self’ sort of thing. It reads like a journal, a personal journal. I found the book very spiritual. I often use the book as a reference or reinforcement. I would absolutely read it again.
Marcus Aurelius is that friend who tells it how it is no matter how tough the truth may be. His ‘personal notes’ feel exactly that – personal. As if he knows where you are in life and what it is you need to hear. Give this book to your enemies and your loved ones alike, and it will quickly become a staple in their lives as it did in mine.
