Description

OVER ONE MILLION COPIES SOLD#1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller'Follow these precepts and you will revolutionize your life.' Steven Pressfield, author of The War of Art 'A book for the bedside of every future - and current - leader in the world.' - Robert Greene, author of The 48 Laws of PowerThe Obstacle is the Way has become a cult classic, beloved by men and women around the world who apply its wisdom to become more successful at whatever they do. The book's many fans include a former governor and movie star (Arnold Schwarzenegger), a hip hop icon (LL Cool J), an Irish tennis pro (James McGee), the World Number 1 golfer (Rory McIlroy) and the coaches and players of winning teams like English Rugby National Team, the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Cubs. The book draws its inspiration from stoicism, the ancient Greek philosophy of enduring pain or adversity with perseverance and resilience.

Stoics focus on the things they can control, let go of everything else, and turn every new obstacle into an opportunity to get better, stronger, tougher.

As Marcus Aurelius put it nearly 2000 years ago: "The impediment to action advances action.

What stands in the way becomes the way." Ryan Holiday shows us how some of the most successful people in history-from John D.

Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Ulysses S. Grant to Steve Jobs-have applied stoicism to overcome difficult or even impossible situations.

Their embrace of these principles ultimately mattered more than their natural intelligence, talents, or luck. If you're feeling frustrated, demoralized, or stuck in a rut, this book can help you turn your problems into your biggest advantages. And along the way it will inspire you with dozens of true stories of the greats from every age and era.
