The Obstacle Is the Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Trials into TriumphThe Obstacle Is the Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Trials into Triumph by Ryan Holiday

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


In many ways, this book is an extension of his earlier book Ego is the Enemy, furthering exploring the philosophy of Stoicism and approaching problems as opportunities. Like the earlier book, the book is full of helpful examples from the worlds of politics, business, sports, and the arts. The writing is clear, direct, and concise. Not nearly as strong as Ego, but still useful.
