    1. Leer este libro no me ha cambiado la vida, pero si me ha hecho replanteármela. Es interesante ver como, sin decirme nada nuevo, consiguió que me diese cuenta de cosas que ya sabia, pero que debido al ajetreo del día a día simplemente había decidido olvidar, porque es más fácil. Muchos dicen que es un texto pesimista, pero lo yo identificaría más como un texto esperanzador y motivador. Lo que más me gusta es que no es un texto.

If you love this classic, you'll want to own th [...]


    4. Meditations Kindle Editionby Marcus AureliusOne I have read before and an excellent classic.Nice to have it on ebook format too - great edition.


    5. Ancient wisdom for today's readers. A great edition of Marcus Aurelius's famous work. Amazing how applicable to today his thoughts still are.


    6. La parte de atrás del libro viene con manchas de dedos. Parece como si lo hubieran tocado con dedos aceitosos.Vale que la cubierta es propensa a mancharse, pero que llegue manchado de serie no me lo esperaba.
