10-Minute Philosophy: From Buddhism to Stoicism, Confucius and Aristotle – Bite-Sized Wisdom From Some of History’s Greatest Thinkers

Classic ideas and ancient concepts broken down for the modern age. A non-academic approach to better living and greater happiness.


Philosophy doesn’t have to be pointless and boring. If we can cut through the difficult language and roundabout reasoning, we’ll find a treasure trove of knowledge and enlightenment. But don’t worry, this is no textbook.


Feeling lost or looking for more? Let's borrow from thousands of years of answers.


10-Minute Philosophy is your quick introduction to philosophy — 6 of the most influential philosophies in history, to be exact. You’ll get a taste of the complexities, but walk away with real, practical advice to improve your life. Philosophy doesn’t need to be an ambiguous thought exercise; this book seeks to make it educational and useful. This is a mumbo-jumbo free zone.
We’ll get straight to the point so you can get back to living your life.
Patrick King is an internationally bestselling author and entrepreneur. His writing draws of a variety of sources, from scientific research, academic experience, coaching, and real life experience.
