A new book from bestselling author Ryan Holiday. The sequel to The Boy Who Would Be King.

It’s one of the most incredible stories in all of history.

Two thousand years ago, in Ancient Greece, a little girl is born into the harshest life possible. Through the power of philosophy, she not only liberates herself from slavery but she frees the minds of millions of people in the centuries that follow...

And now, that parable has been illustrated and told for all ages in a new book: The Girl Who Would Be Free.

This 148-page book is written by bestselling author Ryan Holiday and illustrated by the illustrious Victor Juhasz. Each page tells the story of Epictetus's journey of slavery to freedom through Ryan’s words and Victor’s illustrations.

The book includes:

    • Over 100 exclusive illustrations from Victor Juhasz
    • An illustrated map showing key locations and activities of Epictetus, Musonious Rufus, and more
    • Over 148 pages of writing from Ryan Holiday
    • FREE Audiobook and E-Book
