    “Stoicism is the ancient philosophy for living that I describe in my Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy (Oxford University Press, 2008).
    Since writing that book, I have given much more thought to the application of Stoic advice to the problems that arise in modern living.
    In this blog, I share my thoughts with anyone who, like myself, wants to live the life of a 21st century Stoic.”

    Author’s site description:
    “I’m not good at moderation. My wife and I have a motto,”It’s never too much, it’s only not enough.” This puts me at odds with stoic teaching, where moderation is one of the virtues.
    So I’m trying to find my way into a more stoic mindset. I’ve found nothing but joy and contentment through Stoic practices, so I don’t doubt the benefit of a bit more self-discipline. Still, I know my faults. I’m an Immoderate Stoic and this is my blog.”
