Inhaltsangabe

"The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way." (Marcus Aurelius)

We are stuck, stymied, frustrated. But it needn't be this way. There is a formula for success that's been followed by the icons of history - from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Ulysses S. Grant to Steve Jobs - a formula that let them turn obstacles into opportunities. Faced with impossible situations, they found the astounding triumphs we all seek.

These men and women were not exceptionally brilliant, lucky, or gifted. Their success came from timeless philosophical principles laid down by a Roman emperor who struggled to articulate a method for excellence in any and all situations.

This book reveals that formula for the first time - and shows us how we can turn our own adversity into advantage.

I hear this audio when I feel down

when I feel somewhat discouraged or kind of down I always go back to this book. Afterwards all seems lighter and I win again lust for confronting what may come.
The first time I found the audio a bit to dense. But the second time I liked it much better. Now I hear it every now and then. It is on of my favorite audios.
Highly recommended for people interested in history, philosophy, attitude...
Ryan Holiday also does a great job as a speaker.

Unerträglich

Als zweiseitiges Essay hätte dieses Buch sicher seinen Reiz. Die unglaubliche Ausdehnung und ständige Wiederholung immer wieder der gleichen Phrasen machen es aber unerträglich. Habe nach der Hälfte des Buches abgebrochen. Schade eigentlich.

It's a book about Stoicism

It talks about how some famous people embraced the Philosophy of stoicism. It's not a book which gives you insights about life, but how you can live life if you follow some stoic principles.

Excellent!

The reading is good, but his voice is not the best one. The content is well thought and researched.

Illustrative Zusammenfassung von Stoicism

Ryan holiday hat eine sehr angenehme Stimme. Es lässt sich wunderbar zuhören!
Er bietet eine ausgezeichnete anwendungsorientierte Zusammenfassung der wichtigsten stoischen Konzepte. Dies paart er wunderbar mit illustrativen Geschichten. Das Buch ist ein super Einstieg in die stoischen Lehren.

Wonderful. I'm listening to it again.

Inspires to shift the way we think by 180 degrees. It can be life changing to see every obstacle as an opportunity to grow.

please use another speaker for the next book.

the book is very good!
But ryan should not narrate himself, it sounds like his nose is blocked.
(or maybe check in with a doctor)
