Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.”  — Marcus Aurelius

We are stuck, stymied, frustrated. But it neednt be this way. There is a formula for success thats been followed by the icons of history—from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Ulysses S. Grant to Steve Jobs—a formula that let them turn obstacles into opportunities. Faced with impossible situations, they found the astounding triumphs we all seek.

These men and women were not exceptionally brilliant, lucky, or gifted. Their success came from timeless philosophical principles laid down by a Roman emperor who struggled to articulate a method for excellence in any and all situations.

This book reveals that formula for the first time—and shows us how we can turn our own adversity into advantage.
