Inhaltsangabe

"While the history books are filled with tales of obsessive visionary geniuses who remade the world in their images with sheer, almost irrational force, I've found that history is also made by individuals who fought their egos at every turn, who eschewed the spotlight, and who put their higher goals above their desire for recognition." (From the prologue)

Very interesting, some useful information

Nothing completely new but a lot of stuff that is very helpful if you actually implement it. Inspired me to realise that creating something worthwhile is often not sexy and is just damned hard work.

All of the message is already in the title

Was genau hat Sie an Ego Is the Enemy enttäuscht?

Like so many books in this genre the author tries desperately to inflate a very simple concept until he can sell it as a book.It points out the very obvious fact that being overly self-involved and too focused on your own success and the "myth" that surrounds it is ultimately self-defeating.If you are already a humble person that considers himself to be above nothing and anybody, this book will waste several hours of your time. It will not teach you anything you didn't know already.If you think you have a problem with your ego, it might be mildly enlightening.

Good, but not my favorite book on Ego

- I enjoyed reading the book
- it helps to clarify and deepen the concept of Ego
- but it is rather business and success related
- I missed the aspect of ego in relationships and personal life a bit
- my top pick book on Ego is:
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

Great book but...

... If you want to increase the value of the book further read Mastery and the 48 laws of power by Robert Greene and the subtle are of not giving a fuck by Mark Manson first. Ryan Holiday also cites Greene in his book and Greene is also on the reading list of Ryan, so don't miss that out. Great book. Will read again in a few months.

5 out of 5

loved it. the book had vivid examples and allowed the listen to really follow and identity with the topics of the book.

my favourite quote in the book from Bismarck:  'Fools learn from experience. I prefer to learn from the experience of others.'

In essence this quote is the cornerstone of this great book.

I listened to it once at ordinary speed and then a second time with an increased reading pace.

Das Größte Feind in uns selbst

"Ego is the Enemy" steht auf meiner Must-Read-Liste und das nicht ohne Grund! In meinem Umfeld und besonders in mir selbst kann ich immer wieder beobachten, wie Ego das ist, was uns von wirklichen Erfolg abhält, unsere Errungenschaften schnell wieder zu nichte macht oder uns und andere nach Fehlschlägen noch größeres Verderben bringt. Zu all diesen 3 Bereichen erläutert Ryan Holiday anhand vieler geschichtlicher Beispiele, sowohl aus unserer heutigen als auch längst vergangener Zeit, wie wir es schaffen den größten Feind in uns selbst zu bezwingen. Es ist das Buch was ich bis jetzt am häufigsten weiterempfohlen habe und was ich alle paar Monate über Audibel (Auf 2x Geschwindigkeit) nochmal höre um mich immer wieder daran zu erinnern, was wirklich wichtig ist. Der Autor hat in der englischen Version das Buch selbst vorgelesen, wovon man auch Fan sein muss, deshalb hier nur 4 Sterne. Alles in allem ist "Ego is the Enemy" eins der Bücher das in jeder Audibel-Bibliothek nicht fehlen sollte! (Zur Info: Die Deutsche Version erscheint ende Juli 2017)
