"A guide not just for overcoming the obstacles that hold us back-but for using them for great benefit The great Athenian orator Demosthenes was born with a crippling speech impediment and was robbed of his inheritance by cruel guardians. Samuel Zemurray was a poor roadside fruit peddler pitted against the behemoth United Fruit Company. Ulysses S. Grant found himself stuck across the Mississippi river, desperately trying to break into the impenetrable fortress of Vicksburg. These icons and many others throughout history-from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Richard Wright to Steve Jobs-were often placed in nearly impossible situations that turned out to be the platforms for astounding triumphs. They were not exceptionally brilliant, lucky, or gifted. Their success in overcoming extreme obstacles was the result of a timeless set of philosophical principles that great men and women have always followed. Now Ryan Holiday unpacks those lessons and reframes them for today's world, building on the wisdom of the ancient Stoics and a rich trove of examples. He shows us how to turn obstacles into advantages, through controlling our perceptions, swift and energetic action, and true force of will"--"A guide to overcoming adversity by drawing on the wisdom of the ancient Stoics"--… (lisätietoja)

Ryan Holiday is marketer, entrepreneur, and writer who likes to talk and write about Stoicism and what benefits it can have in the modern world. I've seen a few of his YouTube videos and I have an interest in Stoicism so I have bought a few of his books. I picked this up yesterday afternoon as I was feeling a bit bored and fancied something different. By early evening I had finished the book and while that is usually a good sign, in this case it is not. The book isn't bad, there just isn't much substance to it and could easily have fitted into an essay. The core message is good but at times it is poorly argued. Holiday uses a lot of examples from history and while the American ones are not particularly familiar to me a few of the European ones are. Viktor Frankl is a great example of Stoicism but Margaret Thatcher and Erwin Rommel I would argue are not.

In the end this was a big disappointment, I had expected more and I wonder if this is another case of an 'internet blogger' expanding a little on their blog posts and turning it into a book. ( )

This is the most concise, readable digest about stoicism I've encountered so far. Holiday summarizes the core concepts in universally understandable terms and then shows how great leaders have applied them in a wide variety of circumstances. The overall theme is based on the quote from Marcus Aurelius: "The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way." The structure is organized around the three disciplines of perception, action and will, which derive from another Aurelius quote. Beyond merely staying positive in the face of obstacles, we should learn to embrace them for the opportunity and potential innovation they present. I appreciated that rather than glossing over the reality of negative emotions, the author instead explores the value of learning to put them aside or control them. The book also makes valuable points about using process and continually pressing forward. ( )

Good one. Got introduced to the philosophy of stoicism for the first time formally though that is something very common in our culture (இடுக்கண் வருங்கால் நகுக etc.,) Examples from the history are inspiring. ( )

I made a bunch of highlights in this book that I’ll make note of later. I’ll admit the last few chapters seemed to be in a very similar vein of the first few, so I took fewer notes for later chapters. ( )

Honestly surprised at how many people gave this book a high rating as I found it fairly shallow.
Which is to be expected when the main method of delivery for the stoic themes underlying the book are anecdotes from great men/women of the past and present.

There wasn't any critical analysis or even explanation about how to practically apply many of the principles described in the book other than "endure it" and "be thankful for obstacles because they help you learn".

Ironically, listening to the audiobook version, I found the interview at the end much more insightful than the entire book combined.

I much preferred "A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy" by William Irvine, which was a much more practical book for introducing many of the topics discussed in this one. ( )
