The book was written in 1953 by Ray Bradbury, inspired by several troubling trends seen by the author.  The story follows Montag, a fireman of the future, who’s job is to start rather than put out fires. ...

A Little Stoicism Every Morning
This year I’m reading a book by Ryan Holiday, called The Daily Stoic. The way it works is every morning, you read one page and really digest its message. I liked the idea so I’ve been giving it a go this year.  It’s the second book I’ve read by Holiday. The Obstacle is the Way ...
