Summary "How do we find joy and meaning in our lives when everything we care about can be destroyed in an instant? Philosopher Massimo Pigliucci found the answer in ancient Stoicism. and in A Field Guide to a Happy Life, he offers a new rendition of this philosophy adapted for the twenty-first century. Stoicism is thought os as simply having a stiff upper lip. In Pigliucci's hands, however, the point isn't about indifference; it's about maintaining equanimity in the face of strife and embracing level-headed enjoyment in a culture of excess"--Dust jacket flap.
