I didn't get far. Apparently I am much more of a Peripatetic than a Stoic.

En el siglo IV a. C., Aristóteles funda en Atenas su escuela, una versión muy mejorada de la Academia platónica, donde él mismo estudió en su juventud. Desde ese auténtico centro de formación de los futuros pensadores clásicos supo ejercer una influencia inestimable.

La senda de Aristóteles da testimonio del modo en que una escuela de pensamiento puede ayudarnos a alcanzar la eudaimonía, esa felicidad que consiste en realizar plenamente nuestro potencial.

Las enseñanzas de Aristóteles no caducan, nos dice la autora. La «senda» invita a la reflexión pausada, a la contemplación (¡verdadero elogio del tiempo libre!), a analizar las relaciones con el prójimo (amorosas, de amistad, comunitarias), a preguntarnos qué tenemos en común con un pensador de la antigua Grecia, a entender y mejorar nuestra comunicación y a enfrentarnos con serenidad a la muerte.

Rastreando exhaustivamente la obra de Aristóteles, insertada en el contexto de los principales episodios de su biografía, Edith Hall ofrece aquí una actualización del pensamiento aristotélico junto con una interesante y original propuesta: emplearlo hoy, dos mil cuatrocientos años después, para cambiar nuestra vida.

So I went backward. I read what books on the ancient world I could find, as they there what I had. I learned but it was disjointed and understanding came in fits and starts.

Then I read this book.

The tone and voice is perfect. It is not and does not claim to be the ultimate book on the subject. It's a very good and effective introduction. It's written well and introduces what you need to know to continue study.

More over it sets you up for further study. The opening information includes two detailed maps and a timeline for reference. At the end each chapter has it's own list of references to pick up if a topic caught your eye and you want to know more.

But the brilliance that most impressed me is the habit of connecting and explaining events and populations. This is a vibrant, interactive and dynamic world. It's alive and active and passionate. And she is somehow able to bring that off the page.

This is how an introduction book is written.
