I got a gift of Anni Ultimi for Hanuka. It's a selection of letters by the Roman philosopher Seneca on issues of interest to older people. I'm retired and aging so the main topics of the book are right up my alley. I'm at the point in life when I need wisdom more than ever. I'm having a wonderful experience with this book. The tranlations flow, and I have picked up some thoughts that are pretty deep. I love the two guys who got together to write it. It's a sweet story they tell. There is an overview of stoic philosophy in it, and a brief bio of Seneca, so there is some foundation when you get to the letters. Five stars and thumbs up for Anni Ultimi: A Roman Stoic Guide to Retirement, Old Age, and Death.
Im not sure what a follow up would be. Does anyone know of other books like this where you can read ancient philosophy in a convenient way?
