Contents Listing

Jacket Text

Soul in the Game is a book of inspiring stories and hard-won lessons on how to live a meaningful life, crafted by investor and writer Vitaliy Katsenelson.

Drawing from the lives of classical composers, ancient Stoics, and contemporary thinkers, Katsenelson weaves together a tapestry of practical wisdom that has helped him overcome his greatest challenges: in work, family, identity, health—and in dealing with success, failure, and more.

Part autobiography, part philosophy, part creativity manual, Soul in the Game is a unique and vulnerable exploration of what works, and what doesn’t, in the attempt to shape a fulfilling and happy life.

Professional Reviews

“A fascinating, often amusing, occasionally jarring journey—just like life itself.

“Vitaliy knows how to tell a story. This book reads like a conversation with Vitaliy: deep, insightful, inquisitive and civilized.” Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Author, The Black Swan

“Soul in the Game is a beautiful way to search for the lost value of happiness, strength and health.” Wim Hof, Author, The Wim Hof Method
