Meditations of Marcus Aurelius – SUMMARIZED – (22 Stoic Principles to Live by)

This is my own summary of Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. I’ve taken nearly every point he made, reordered and then summarised them. If you’re new to the book this provides a good idea of what he says in a much shorter, easier to understand form. I’ve done my best not to add anything myself except for where I’m explaining his point. Free PDF: http://bit.ly/MeditationsSummaryPDF Meditations Audiobook: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5E2A…
