Ryan Holiday with Rich Roll

Ryan Holiday talks to Rich Roll on his new book, “Lives of the Stoics,” an inspiring guide to the lives of the Stoics, and what the ancients can teach us about happiness, success, resilience and virtue. Stoicism has found a new audience among those who seek greatness, from athletes to politicians and everyone in between. It’s no wonder; the philosophy and its embrace of self-mastery, virtue, and indifference to that which we cannot control is as urgent today as it was in the chaos of the Roman Empire. Lives of the Stoics presents the fascinating lives of the men and women who strove to live by the timeless Stoic virtues of Courage, Justice, Temperance, and Wisdom. Organized in digestible, mini-biographies of all the well-known–and not so well-known–Stoics, dusting off powerful lessons to be learned from their struggles and successes.
