The Obstacle Is The Way by Ryan Holiday is an accessible introduction to stoicism. Think of it as a mix between ancient philosophy and modern self-help. What would Marcus Aurelius do when your stock price dips? The mix of anecdotes and timeless wisdom is direct and conversational.

FWIW Marcus Aurelius' Meditations is surprisingly accessible, as far as intros to stoicism go. Plain language, incredible insights.

This is a great read and one I've shared with friends. They say they want to learn more philosophy but are really saying they want real world utility/advice to improve their lives. Therefore this is a go to book to share.
