Let's see if we can prepare a list of "modern" books to mention in a list of those for people to consider on the "practical side." We can edit and update this list as more are added. Links are to the book's location at Amazon.com:
Please included in the thread below any you would like to add to this list, plus give your comment on it. Thanks!
- Haris Dimitriadis (Epicurus and the Pleasant Life - A Philosophy of Nature" and "Death is Nothing To Fear")
- Catherine Wilson (How To Be An Epicurean / Pleasure Principle note: these two are the same with different titles for different markets)
- Hiram Crespo (Tending the Epicurean Garden)
- Pierre Hadot (Philosophy As A Way of Life)
