A comic recap of the classic book of Stoic Wisdom, The Enchiridion (or Handbook) by Epictetus.
“Who says Stoicism has to be grim? This is the wisdom of Epictetus for today’s world, with apt humour and wry wit on every page. You’ll laugh, and be a better person for it!”
"Some welcome comic relief for modern stoicism by way of a witty recap of Epictetus’s Handbook, coming from someone who actually gets it – the humor in it as well as the serious stuff."
“I can imagine Epictetus going to the local taverna with Frank Miles, the two of them enjoying Miles’ version of the Enchiridion. After all, Epictetus himself had a very good sense of humor.”
“Can a Stoic handbook be funny? Hey, does a duck have lips? Seriously, Frank Miles has taken Epictetus' Handbook and transformed it into an enlightening and amusing stand-up comedy routine. But Miles pulls this off with considerable respect for the original text, and even manages to one-up Epictetus in clearly explaining certain elements of Stoicism. For folks who would rather read IRS instruction sheets than delve into philosophy, Frank Miles comes to the rescue with his very entertaining booklet.”
“A thoroughly fun, extremely readable, and cleverly instructive take on Epictetus’ Handbook. Mel Brooks would be proud of what Frank Miles has produced.”
