Last night, Betabeat and the New York Observer celebrated the publication of Ryan Holiday’s new book, The Obstacle is the Way: The Ancient Art of Turning Adversity to Advantage.

About 100 plaid-wearing youngsters, including many start-up types and even a few smokers, enjoyed hair-raisingly strong margaritas and a stunning view atop the McCarren Hotel in Williamsburg.
