"The Stoic Drummer" is a collection of axioms relating the philosophy of Stoicism to the practice of drumming, composed of crisp, universal quotes, mantras and meditations. From drumming great Mark Guiliana: "The Stoic Drummer has become an integral part of my drumming library. Whether consumed cover to cover, or one page at a time, it is an inspiring reminder to always approach the instrument with gratitude and honestly." Drumming educator Dave Elitch says "The Stoic Drummer is the most important kind of book there is because it exposes an entirely new audience of drummers to the concepts and ideas of Stoicism and Philosophy at large. This is the match that is capable of starting a roaring fire inside someone who may not have otherwise had the opportunity." Modern Drummer: "You don't need a doctorate in philosophy to find value here; the bite-sized chunks of wisdom couldn't be easier to absorb. That doesn't mean this is "light" reading, though. Sometimes the simplest concepts are the toughest to apply to our own lives, so the benefits to readers are ultimately up to them." ElevenPDX Magazine..."The Stoic Drummer is the perfect companion for any serious drummer who needs some assistance focusing on their craft during these difficult times. Its Zen-like layout alone helps concentrate the mind on the wise words within."
