Enchiridion and Selections from the Discourses of Epictetus

Management Guide to Effective Information Systems Administration, A - Robert J. Thierauf, Robert J. Theirauf Very readable translation. I particularly enjoyed the introduction to this book, and I usually don't like introductions! The intro did a great job of helping me understand where Epictetus fits in the history of philosophy, and my imagination was really struck by parallels between ancient Stoicism and more modern Determinism. I think the introduction really set me up to be interested in what Epictetus had to say.
