Ego is the Enemy
A powerful meditation on the nature and dangers of ego. Ego has wrecked the careers of promising young geniuses. It's evaporated great fortunes and run companies into the ground. It's made adversity unbearable and turned struggle into shame.
Every great philosopher has warned against it, in our most lasting stories and countless works of art, in all culture and all ages, and it is the enemy - of ambition, of success and of resilience.
Ryan Holiday shows us how and why ego is such a powerful internal opponent to be guarded against at all stages of our careers and lives. We can only create our best work when we acknowledge and disarm its dangers. Taking his inspiration from characters and narratives from literature, philosophy and history, the book explores the nature and dangers of ego.
Ego is the Enemy will illustrate how you can be humble in your aspirations, gracious in your success and resilient in your failures. The result is an inspiring and timely reminder that humility and confidence are our greatest friends when confronting the challenges of a culture that tends to fan the flames of ego, a book full of themes and life lessons that will resonate, uplift and inspire.
