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.
