Marcus Aurelius was the Roman Emperor from 161 to 180 AD, and during that time, he kept several collections of journals that contained personal notes, militaristic strategy, and ideas on Stoic philosophy. While unlikely that he ever intended to publicly publish these journals, there is no real official title, so most often “Meditations” is used because of his in-depth writings on philosophy. These journals give an introspective look at how and why Marcus Aurelius’ operated as an emperor. This informative piece of history contains twelve sections that each chronicle different parts of Aurelius’ life, including his source of guidance, self-improvement tips, and his ideas on how to analyze yourself and adjust your attitude to become a better person or leader.

    " Dude was a legend. Stoic wisdom for winners. Kind of like a religious text in the sense that you don't ever really "finish" reading it. "

    " Marcus-Aurelius was the head honcho almost 2000 years ago and he found time to write down a few profound thoughts. The language is a bit bizarre at times but it is most definitely a classic. "

    " Perhaps it's my lazy scientific brain, but this is one of the few philosophically-inclined books that interests me. "

    " I don't know that anything has informed my thinking more than this - really. I'll write a proper review, but for now, I can't say anything more than this gets my highest recommendations. "

    " I turned to this book when I was very stressed out, and also examining something called mindfulness, the Buddhist counterpart to Stoicism. Meditations won't offer you behavioral help, but it offers honesty, passion, and should you delve into it yourself with honesty and passion, ataraxia. "
