Loved it and the simpleness of the writing.
I will definitely immerse into the stoic way and purchase some of the recommended books.
This is a really great read. It’s one of those books you want to reread to remind yourself of the key points.
I kept co omg across this book for some time and finally jumped into it and was immediately hooked and inspired. Ryan does a great job laying it all out in very concise and easy to understand concepts and action items. The book is Otha Zies into very short chapters which I really liked because you could easily knock a few out of short on time. More often than not, I found myself reading much more than “I had time for”.
I really appreciate the reading suggestions in the back of the book as stoicism is something that is interesting me more and more the more I read and I’m looking forward to expanding my knowledge with these suggestions.
Well done Ryan and thank you. I really needed this book right now.
Life changing pocket bible! Wow!
I picked this book up after seeing it on Tim Ferriss' book club recommendation, I'm glad I did. Very interesting without being pious or preachy. Great examples of great men and women in history and how they used the classics of antiquity guide them through their trials.
One caveat, I listened to the Ferriss interview with the author after I bought the book and am glad I did because Mr. Holiday is certainly not a public and does absolutely nothing to bolster his position as a Stoic by publicly speaking. He has found calling and needs to stick with the written word.
Why you may ask? Because he sounds like a 30 year old kid living in his parents basement, sounds very unsure of himself, too young, and has accomplishments with which to support his dispensing of Stoic wisdom. But he writes a great book and I'm sure will develop his speaking ability.
Changed my view on things. One of my favorite books
The Obstacle Is The Way is a short read that took me a few weeks to read because of the enthusiasm I had for applying these great lessons.
