The book Everything Has Two Handles by Ronald Pies presents itself as an accessible introduction into Stoicism, for the 'intelligent layperson that wants to live well,' and Pies skillfully achieves this end....It is a book that can easily be reread or referenced for continued application and guidance. The reader is not left overwhelmed but is offered a clear understanding. * Philosophical Practice, October 2008 *
In this breathtaking tour of ancient wisdom, Ron Pies, M.D., makes the philosophy of the Stoics come alive for the modern reader. Touching on our most urgent contemporary problems-the meaning of happiness, the role of pleasure, the importance of wisdom, friendship, balance, harmony, and anger-the Stoics provide a surprisingly fresh and instructive set of principles about how to live. With numerous examples from the world's philosophical and religious traditions, as well as vignettes about people struggling to understand their lives in the 21st century, Pies has created a guide filled with warmth, clear thinking, strong values, and the deep pleasure that comes from our recognition of the enduring truths. -- Richard M. Berlin, M.D., Associate Professor of Psychiatry, University of Massachusetts Medical School; poet and columnist Psychiatric Times
