I just finished it too. Anyone who likes Ryan Holliday's other work on stoicism should read this one too. It's not jut a narrative work of non-fiction.

Holliday sets it up as a battle between two men, one of whom learns from Michiavelli, the other from Seneca. He uses the battle between them to explore how to mount and run a successful conspiracy and how to avoid becoming the victim of one. It's extremely ambitious and he delivers on what he promises he would do.

In telling that story he also does a good job of detailing the history of Gawker and the rise of internet blogging culture. So it works for fans of non-fiction and media history as well.
