Epictetus Gets Reviewed on

I saw this and couldn’t NOT share it here. This is a real-life review of the works of Epictetus written by an interested reader on Amazon who somehow missed that this is not a contemporary author, but assumed that he is a recent, self-help writer who has stolen all of these old ideas. Having read from Epictetus’s 2,000 year old writing to the congregation, I thought there’d be a few who really appreciate this.
