    Instant number one New York Times best seller and Wall Street Journal best seller

    In The Obstacle Is the Way and Ego Is the Enemy, best-selling author Ryan Holiday made ancient wisdom wildly popular with a new generation of leaders in sports, politics, and technology. In his new book, Stillness Is the Key, Holiday draws on timeless Stoic and Buddhist philosophy to show why slowing down is the secret weapon for those charging ahead.

    All great leaders, thinkers, artists, athletes, and visionaries share one indelible quality. It enables them to conquer their tempers. To avoid distraction and discover great insights. To achieve happiness and do the right thing. Ryan Holiday calls it stillness - to be steady while the world spins around you. In this audiobook, he outlines a path for achieving this ancient, but urgently necessary way of living. Drawing on a wide range of history's greatest thinkers, from Confucius to Seneca, Marcus Aurelius to Thich Nhat Hanh, John Stuart Mill to Nietzsche, he argues that stillness is not mere inactivity, but the doorway to self-mastery, discipline, and focus.

    Holiday also examines figures who exemplified the power of stillness: baseball player Sadaharu Oh, whose study of Zen made him the greatest home run hitter of all time; Winston Churchill, who in balancing his busy public life with time spent laying bricks and painting at his Chartwell estate managed to save the world from annihilation in the process; Fred Rogers, who taught generations of children to see what was invisible to the eye; Anne Frank, whose journaling and love of nature guided her through unimaginable adversity. More than ever, people are overwhelmed. They face obstacles and egos and competition. Stillness Is the Key offers a simple but inspiring antidote to the stress of 24/7 news and social media. The stillness that we all seek is the path to meaning, contentment, and excellence in a world that needs more of it than ever.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "In this age of manufactured outrage and constant distraction, the ability to choose a focused inner stillness is arguably more important than ever before. Ryan Holiday’s book revives ancient wisdom that calls for a quiet life in a noisy and restless world." (Mark Manson, number one best-selling author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck)

    "The next Malcolm Gladwell. Ryan Holiday's just brilliant." (Lance Armstrong)

    "Whether you are an athlete, an investor, a writer or an entrepreneur, this little but wise and soulful book will open the door to a healthier, less anxious and more productive life and career." (Arianna Huffington)

    Average in every way.

    Sometimes extremly banale. The speaker gets very monotonous. For a better more detailed experience liszen to: The laws of human nature.

    Keep on listening

    For the first hour it is really hard to follow. You ask yourself, where is this going? What is this book?
    After that hour it all falls together. It makes sense. It is a great listen and I highly recommend it. Very moving and a lot of aha moments. I will go back to some parts for sure.

    one of Holiday's best to date!

    I could easily finish it and loved the stories of all the successful people that came along with it. It's also a great present.

    Alles in einem!

    Ryan Holiday enttäuscht nicht! Auch wenn das Buch uns nicht wirklich neue Sachen vermittelt, fasst es die wichtigsten Punkte der Philosophie, Spiritualität, Psychologie und Geschichte, wie man innere Ruhe finden kann, zusammen. Besonders als Erinnerung und Nachschlagewerk für bestimmte Haltungen und Methoden ist das Buch golden. Insgesamt ist das Werk, ja ich muss es sagen, zu KURZ! Ryan behandelt viele tolle Themen, doch leider ist jedes Thema schon nach 10 Minuten vorbei. Deswegen, wie gesagt, ein Auffrischer. Man sollte sich hinsetzen, selber kontemplieren, und die Quellen auch alle lesen.

    Repetitive, dull, and boring

    It's bad in general, and the good parts are just Mindfulness with extra steps. Not recommend.

    very boring

    The idea is good, but basically no substance. Very boring. I felt I lost time!
