Bookbinge: Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

I recently finished this book over the past week. It’s short, less than 100 pages, but I’ll need to read it again, or probably 10 more times, before I can say that I have an understanding of all the topics Marcus discusses. This book is deep.

The part I enjoyed the most about this book is that here is a man who, at the time, is one of the most powerful men in the world and we get to read his personal journal to find out that he’s experiencing the same every day issues we deal with today. Except he was writing about these topics 1900 years ago. I find it fascinating that I’m reading the words of a man from A.D. 161.

This book is a part of the Art of Manliness’s 100 Must-Read Books: The Essential Man’s Library.
