Description on Amazon:
Nowadays it feels that there’s something wrong with being a hero, acting heroically or celebrating heroes.
It seems there are no more noble heroes and no more role models.
But it wasn’t always this way.
The ancient Greek philosopher Plutarch believed that having heroic role models was the most important goal of society.
This book tries to distil the wisdom of many heroes of the past and present in the form of rules, guides, letters and quotes.
Whether you’re looking to get a job, take your career to the next level, start a business, or simply become a better person, this read can nudge you in the right direction.
So, what are you waiting for?
