This book gives us a piece of stoic wisdom to read each day for a whole year. The topics varied from serenity, to happiness, to understanding life better, to adversities, and to death and many others; divided into one different topic to discuss for each month. I cannot say that I found anything new here because all the wisdoms are part of the main Islamic teachings that I live by, and the prophet Muhammad's lifestyle that was transported to us via his sayings, teachings and reactions to the daily-life challenges. I apply the wisdom given in this book everyday as part of my beliefs and my endeavors to live the life and have the mindset of my prophet. And this was one of the main reasons I liked this book. It was so close to my culture, religious applications , and mindset. Therefore, this book was fine and nice reminder of what I already know, molded into a historic, philosophic, and human-developmental style, which gave me an insight into new perspectives, stories and people that I did not know of before, but that were all similar to the way I was taught to perceive life. This book was recommended to me in a French learning podcast, by a French teacher who was obsessed with this book and his author, and mentioned them almost every week for a while year. So, I decided to give it a try and read it as soon as I could. And I think it was worth it. It took me months to read this book; I did not read it day-by-day as I should, but I also did not rush to read it. I only read 12 wisdoms or so in each session. I feel that this book has benefited me in some way by reshaping my understanding of certain aspects, reminding me of things that I may have forgotten, and adding to my knowledge of the philosophers, philosophies and the history of ancient empires. The style was good, the language was friendly and easy to read, and the organization of topics was attractive. Four stars for the topics and all, and one dropped for certain stuff that were indigestible for me, and that contradicted my beliefs and opinions in one way or another
