1. See the world as it is
2. Take action
3. Have will
On the first point I would have liked to see a better understanding of it apart from what the author calls difference between perceive and observe.
Ryan holiday teaches how to convert obstacle and adversity into your advantage.
Favorite line "The impediment to action advances action, and what stands in the way becomes the way"
It infact tells you exactly that what is says on it's cover

But I can live with it. Binding is solid.
