Product Description

Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus was the model of what we call a philosopher-king. Though his rule was troubled by war and conflict, he remained a thoughtful and even-handed ruler. This beautiful edition brings to you a collection of his personal diary entries written over a ten-year campaign in Greece. The entries were never meant to be published; instead, they were a reminder to himself of how to remain calm, tranquil, and kind, even in the worst of situations. In them we see the emperor working out how to deal with the everyday problems all of us face: annoying co-workers, difficult family members, the expectations of others, unrealized goals and achievements, and, ultimately, happiness. This classic edition is a must-have for all! • This hardbound edition comes with gilded edges, a ribbon bookmark, and beautiful endpapers • Wisdom to shape your life to accomplish desired goals • Suggestions towards self-improvement • Empowers you to build strong interpersonal relations • The direction to build a foundation for lasting successes

About Author

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus was born to an upper-class Roman family in A.D. 121 and was later adopted by the future emperor Antoninus Pius, whom he succeeded in 161. His reign was marked by a successful campaign against Parthia, but was overshadowed in later years by plague, an abortive revolt in the eastern provinces, and the deaths of friends and family, including his co-emperor Lucius Verus. A student of philosophy from his earliest youth, he was especially influenced by the first-century Stoic thinker Epictetus. His later reputation rests on his Meditations, written during his later years and never meant for formal publication. He died in 180, while campaigning against the barbarian tribes on Rome’ s northern frontier.
