"We are disturbed not by events, but by the views which we take of them."

Born in 55 AD, the Greek Stoic Philosopher Epictetus overcame slavery and a crippling injury to become one of the greatest minds of his age.

The Enchiridion (or "Handbook") is a classic philosophical text that collects Epictetus' core ethical teachings. Though there is no record of his actual writing, his pupil Arrian was able to compile this distillation of Epictetus spoken oratory. The text that remains offers a keen understanding of his thought, and has preserved one of western philosophy’s brightest minds for generations to come.

The Enchiridion by Epictetus, translated by George Long, was published in 1877 and is now in the public domain. This audio book was recorded by LearnOutLoud.com and is narrated by Antonia Bath.
