I got this book suggested by someone who used to be a D1 kicker on the football team in the ACC, built and owns a multi-million dollar business, is a scratch golfer, travels on the national squash team, and for fun plays tennis at a remarkable high level. He said that this was the best book he read for athletes and high-performers and re-reads the a couple times per year. Naturally I bought the book, loved it, re-read it, and made my Junior Davis Cup team read it in lead up to our World Championship….
Ryan Holiday, the other of this book, divides the book up in three main chapters: 1) Perception, 2) Action, and 3) Will. He subdivides each of these topics in smaller chapters where he breaks down the definition and provides examples of past leaders, generals, athletes, etc. who have lived these values. This book is very easy to read, the examples he provides are enjoyable and diverse, and a great book to take change your perspective on your job, personal life, and day to day. Enjoy!
