Just picked this up from the library...

...and can't put it down:

A Guide to the Good Life - The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy, by William B. Irvine

"Irvine has a refreshingly economic and enjoyable writing style. Like the unadorned philosophy he recommends, his book moves concisely through the most useful aspects of Stoic counsel: how to avoid feelings of frustration, how to prevent insults from angering us, how to overcome feelings of grief, how to avoid the cravings for fame, how to want what we already have." -- Stephen T. Asma, Chronicle of Higher Education
