Who knew that ancient history could teach us so many lessons about relationships? Author John Vespasian shared many fascinating stories on my radio show.
My radio guest, John Vespasian, is an expert on ancient history. He’s written eight books about rational living, including “When Everything Fails, Try This” (2009), “Rationality Is the Way to Happiness” (2009), “The Philosophy of Builders: How to Build a Great Future with the Pieces from Your Past” (2010), “The 10 Principles of Rational Living” (2012), “Rational Living, Rational Working: How to Make Winning Moves When Things Are Falling Apart” (2013), “Consistency: The Key to Permanent Stress Relief” (2014), “On Becoming Unbreakable: How Normal People Become Extraordinarily Self-Confident” (2015), and “Thriving in difficult times: Twelve lessons from Ancient Greece to improve your life today” (2016).
I interviewed him on episode #244: What Ancient History Can Teach Us About Relationships. Highlights of our interview can be found below.
