Reviews
The most companionable of the new Stoic books.--Molly Young "New York Times"
[A] comprehensive guide to [Seneca's] ideas... Fideler keeps things accessible and offers plenty of real-world examples for applying philosophy to one's life, making for a great crash course. Philosophy newbies will find this a fine introduction.-- "Publishers Weekly"
This is a rare gem of a book: simultaneously comforting and challenging, edifying and entertaining.--Eric Weiner, author of The Socrates Express
This book is the perfect antidote to the commercialism and superficial values of modern times. Although Seneca was living two thousand years ago, he speaks directly to us today.--Robin Waterfield, translator of Marcus Aurelius and Epictetus
When I find myself in a tight spot, I take a philosophical shortcut and simply ask, 'What would Seneca do?' David Fideler's wonderful Breakfast with Seneca will come in handy in such situations. An accessible introduction to Stoic practice and to the Stoic philosophy in general.--William B. Irvine, author of A Guide to the Good LIfe and The Stoic Challenge
A feast for the soul and spirit. Those who absorb the lessons in Breakfast with Seneca will embark on a life more worth living.--Christopher Phillips PhD, author of Socrates Cafe
A fine guide to Seneca, Stoicism, and what it means to live a Stoic life. Highly readable.--John Sellars, author of Lessons in Stoicism
A great introduction to both Seneca and Stoicism. It will even help those already familiar with Seneca's writings to gain more benefit from them.--Donald Robertson, author of How to Think Like a Roman Emperor
