Editorial Reviews

Review

“The book on stoicism that’s taking the NFL by storm.”
Sports Illustrated

"The best one I've read. Ryan Holiday is brilliant. If I had read
The Obstacle Is the Way sooner, a few things might have been different."
- Rory McIlroy, 2x PGA Champion

“Follow these precepts and you will revolutionize your life. Read this book!”
Steven Pressfield, author of The War of Art and Gates of Fire

“A book for the bedside of every future—and current—leader in the world.”
Robert Greene, author of The 48 Laws of Power and Mastery

“First came Marcus Aurelius, then Frederick the Great . . . and now there’s you. This surprising book shows you how to craft a life of wonder by embracing obstacles and challenges.”
Chris Guillebeau, author of The $100 Startup

"A very, very good book with lots of examples about people who had to overcome great obstacles to have success."
Nick Saban, head football coach at the University of Alabama 

“In this tight, engaging book, Ryan Holiday shines a bright, powerful light on the path to living and leading well. Read it, learn from it, and get cracking!”
Nancy F. Koehn, historian and leadership expert, Harvard Business School

“My life has been beset with obstacles. It takes practice (and pain) to surmount them and achieve success. Ryan’s book is a how-to guide for just that.”
James Altucher, investor and author of Choose Yourself
 
“Ryan Holiday has written a brilliant and engaging book, well beyond his years. . . . It is invaluable.”
Honorable Frederic Block, Judge, U.S. District Court

“Even though I was familiar with the basis for this book — the ancient philosophy of stoicism: overcoming obstacles through the practice of wisdom, courage, self-control, and mindfulness — it felt like a revelation when I read it.”
—Allison K. Hill, Los Angeles Daily News
 
“Tremendous! Go buy every book that Ryan Holiday has written."
—John Tesh, host of national radio show Intelligence for Your Life
