The first book in Stoicism guru Ryan Holiday's new series looking at the four key virtues of Stoicism.
Fortune favours the bold. All great leaders of history have known this, and were successful because of the risks they dared to take. But today so many of us are paralysed by fear.
Drawing on ancient Stoic wisdom and examples across history and around the world, Ryan Holiday shows 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.
Everything in life begins with courage. This book will equip you with the bravery to begin.
Ryan Holiday is one of the world's foremost thinkers and writers on ancient philosophy and its place in everyday life. His books have sold over 3 million copies worldwide, and include The Obstacle is the Way; Ego is the Enemy; Stillness is the Key and The Daily Stoic.
