Ryan Holiday's Courage is Calling traces the history of courage and its many faces through the ages and arrives at the present day with an urgent call to arms for each and all of us. As we battle our enemies within and without, will we choose to rise-up to the call of our courage or blush and bow down to the whispers of our cowardice? Our answer to this question is about more than our sense of duty, it's about our freedom. It's about more than wins and losses, it's about our survival. It's on me, it's on you, it's on us. Take the dare we may. -- Matthew McConaughey, Academy Award Winning Actor and New York Times #1 best-selling author
