Inspiring yet practical ... teaches us how to manage and tame this beast within us so that we can focus on what really matters - producing the best work possible. -- Robert Greene, author * Mastery * Ryan Holiday is one of his generation's finest thinkers, and this book is his best yet. -- Steven Pressfield, author * The War of Art * Highlights how we can earn confidence by pursuing something bigger than our own success. -- Adam Grant, author of * Originals and Give and Take * This book is packed with stories and quotes that will help you get out of your own way. Whether you're starting out or starting over, you'll find something to steal here. -- Austin Kleon, author * Steal Like An Artist * This is a book I want every athlete, aspiring leader, entrepreneur, thinker and doer to read. Ryan Holiday is one of the most promising young writers of his generation. -- George Raveling, Hall of Fame Basketball coach, Nike's Director of International Basketball I see the toxic vanity of ego at play every day and it never ceases to amaze me how often it wrecks promising creative endeavors. Read this book before it wrecks you or the projects and people you love. Consider it as urgently as you do a proper workout regimen and eating right. Ryan's insights are priceless. -- Marc Ecko, founder of Ecko Unltd and Complex I don't have many rules in life, but one I never break is: If Ryan Holiday writes a book, I read it as soon as I can get my hands on it. -- Brian Koppelman, screenwriter and director, Rounders, Ocean's Thirteen and Billions Once again Ryan Holiday has laid down the gauntlet for readers willing to challenge themselves with the tough questions of our time. Every reader will find truths that are pertinent to each of our lives. Ego can be the enemy if we are unarmed with the cautionary insights of history, scripture, and philosophy. As was said to St. Augustine more than a thousand years ago, "pick it up and read"; for to not do so is to allow the enemy to bring despair. -- Dr. Drew Pinsky, host of HLN's 'Dr. Drew On Call' and 'Love Line' In this day in age where everyone seeks instant gratification, the idea of success is skewed - many believing the road to their goals is a linear path. As a former professional athlete I can tell you that the road is anything but linear. In fact it is one that consists of twists, turns, and ups and downs - it requires you to put your head down and put in the work. Ryan Holiday hits the nail on the head with this book, reminding us that the real success is in the journey and learning process. I only wish I had this gem as a reference during my playing days. -- Lori Lindsey, former U.S. Women's National Team soccer player Philosophy has gotten a bad rap, but Ryan Holiday is restoring it to its rightful place in our lives. This book-packed with unforgettable stories, strategies, and lessons-is perfect for anyone who strives to do and accomplish. It's no exaggeration to say that, after finishing it, you'll never open your laptop and sit down to work the same way again. -- Jimmy Soni, former managing editor of Huffington Post and author of Rome's Last Citizen I would like to rip out every page and use them as wallpaper so I could be reminded constantly of the humility and work it takes to truly succeed. In the margins of my copy, I have scrawled the same message over and over-'pre-Gold.' Reading this inspiring book brought back me back to the humility and work ethic it took to win the Olympics. -- Chandra Crawford, Olympic Gold Medalist What a valuable book for those in positions of authority! It has made me a better judge. -- The Honorable Frederic Block, United States District Judge and author of 'Disrobed'

Derzeit tritt ein Problem beim Filtern der Rezensionen auf. Bitte versuchen Sie es später noch einmal.
Auf Grundlage der Philosophie der Stoa (das klassische Nachschlagwerk hierfür wäre Marcus Aurelius' Meditations) bringt Ryan Holiday uns in Ego is the Enemy bei, wie wir, egal in welcher Lebenslage,
- Ablenkungen vermeiden und uns auf das Wesentliche im Leben konzentrieren
- Egoismus durch wahres Selbstbewusstsein ersetzen
- die Erwartungen anderer und unseren Ruf bedeutungslos machen
- Verluste, Zwickmühlen und Fehlschläge besser wegstecken und in positive Energie umwandeln
- effektiver und effizienter arbeiten
- in heiklen Situationen, ob persönlich oder im Business, einen kühlen Kopf bewahren und die richtigen Entscheidungen treffen
- Genuss und Dankbarkeit an den kleinen Dingen im Leben finden
- eine gelassene, selbstbewusste und handlungsfähige Persönlichkeit entwickeln
Ihr werdet bessere Menschen werden, und dadurch mehr Anerkennung bekommen...
...Glücklicherweise wird euch diese dann ziemlich egal sein. :-)
Second, it goes on and on about some peripheral characters from American history without mentioning many much more relevant people who tackled and defeated the ego throughout history.
Third, nicely wrapped up between the lines, still gives an impression that success is to "make it big" a.k.a. the American dream. It just needs to be done tactically and with patience, that is pretty much the main advice.
Fourth, politics again. I was wondering when I would read something against the Russian President Vladimir Putin. It came on page 146. Of course!
Final: anyone serious about stoicism and philosophy in general will find this book rather silly. I regret the paper it was printed on and am currently using the book to level a table in the garage. Fits perfectly.
Thank you Ryan, I follow you and many other great writers, authors, business, sales people. Good luck to everybody!
Ein sehr tolles Buch für Persönlichkeitsentwicklung, aber auch für eine neue Sicht auf alte Probleme und auch Eigenschaften, die man an sich selber nicht immer sieht oder wahr haben will.
Das Selbstbild, das man von sich hat zu korrigieren.
Bin begeistert über das Angebot einer ausführlichen Leseliste dazu, als Bonusempfehlung für weitere Lektüre.
The ego, you being "so good at something", can really get to your head and prevent you from achieving your goals. It was an interesting read and it made me reconsider some of the things that I had believed were true about my life.
I'd recommend it. If you at any point don't feel like reading it, or disagree with what is written in the book, just take a break and read it later. You will eventually get to like it.
