As part of Stoic Week, Stoicism Today: Selected Writings can be downloaded for free from the Amazon Kindle store Monday to Friday of Stoic Week.
Click here for UK store and here for US.
About the book: From Stoic ethics to emotions, from Stoic mayors and mindfulness to practical philosophy, parenting, psychotherapy and prisons, from Star Trek and Socrates to Stoic lawyers, literature and living in general, this book brings together a wide-ranging collection of reflections on living the Stoic life today. You’ll read advice on coping with adversity, reflections on happiness and the good life and powerful personal testimonies of putting Stoicism into practise. But you’ll also read about the links between Stoicism and psychotherapy, Stoicism and mindfulness meditation and the unexpected places Stoicism can pop up in modern culture. This book will be of interest to both academics and non-academics alike and is about the varied ways in which the 2,300 year old philosophy as a way of life remains relevant to the concerns and needs of the present day.
NB. On the Amazon store, there will be two options ‘Buy now’ and ‘Read for 0.00 (with Kindle Unlimited). The latter is a special offer from Amazon which involves taking out a monthly subscription to read unlimited Kindle books. This has nothing to do with the Stoicism Today book offer! To get the book for free, click ‘Buy now’. As the book is currently listed at 0.00, it will cost nothing.
I’m sorry but the link takes me to a paid kindle version.
Where are you based Massey?
If you press the read for free button you are signing up to 30 day trial of Kindle unlimited which will then cost £7.99 per month!
Yes that’s a separate Amazon offer to do with their Kindle Unlimited programming. That’s nothing to do with the free book offer though – confusing I admit! The thing to do is to
click ‘buy now’ button – as it is priced at 0.00 it won’t charge anything.
It now seems to be free on the UK site, but can only be accessed by people in the UK. It still costs money on the US site.
Thanks Kate – I just checked now though and it is free on US too. Might have been something to do with US working hours, or sometimes unless you are in the US they don’t show pricing info.
Thanks Patrick. Yes it is available for free now in the US store. And I’m based in India.
Great – it was just a time zone thing, I think (I hope!)
