For an obsessive-compulsive (O-C for short), the idea of traveling is usually nothing more than that, an idea. An O-C actually doing the traveling is a terrifying prospect; we are far too circumscribed and self-regulated to accomplish the planning, get on the planes, find our accommodations at our destinations, and actually enjoy the process. Fold in introversion, and you've got a crippling combination. Solo travel? Forget it.

Travel for STOICs is both a travel book and a survival manual, but of a different sort. It's not about which great restaurants to patronize or what sites are a must-see in a given place; it's about how to master solo travel challenges that happen in between those activities while successfully managing your O-C, introverted self. This book is especially for the STOIC--the Solo Traveler: Obsessive, Introverted, Compulsive--and for those who care about our well-being and happiness.

Throughout Travel for STOICs, you'll find quotes borrowed from three of the ancient Stoic greats: Epictetus, Seneca, and Marcus Aurelius. You'll discover contemporary concepts embedded in the ideas of the ancient Stoics and helpful advice to contend with challenges that arise during present-day travel. For all of our STOIC quandaries, nothing beats the wisdom of our Stoic triumvirate.

Travel for STOICs is the book for the Solo Traveler who is Obsessive, Introverted, and Compulsive. As an O-C, you know the power of habits, so being a STOIC will provide valuable training that you'll be able to apply to all areas of your life.
