Drawing on ancient Stoic wisdom and examples across history and around the world, bestselling philosopher and podcaster Ryan Holiday shows us why courage is so important, and how to cultivate it in our own lives. Courage is not simply physical bravery but also doing the right thing and standing up for what you believe; it’s creativity, generosity and perseverance. And it is the only way to live an extraordinary, fulfilled and effective life.
