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

“Ryan Holiday has written a brilliant and engaging book, well beyond his years. . . . It is invaluable.”

—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
