Ego Is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday Book Summary

The instant Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and international bestseller

“While the history books are filled with tales of obsessive visionary geniuses who remade the world in their image 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
Many of us insist the main impediment to a full, successful life is the outside world. In fact, the most common enemy lies within: our ego. Early in our careers, it impedes learning and the cultivation of talent. With success, it can blind us to our faults and sow future problems. In failure, it magnifies each blow and makes recovery more difficult. At every stage, ego holds us back.
Ego Is the Enemy draws on a vast array of stories and examples, from literature to philosophy to his­tory. We meet fascinating figures such as George Marshall, Jackie Robinson, Katharine Graham, Bill Belichick, and Eleanor Roosevelt, who all reached the highest levels of power and success by con­quering their own egos. Their strategies and tactics can be ours as well.
In an era that glorifies social media, reality TV, and other forms of shameless self-promotion, the battle against ego must be fought on many fronts. Armed with the lessons in this book, as Holiday writes, “you will be less invested in the story you tell about your own specialness, and as a result, you will be liberated to accomplish the world-changing work you’ve set out to achieve.”

Excellent. Excellent

Amazing. Amazing read!

Accessible, inspirational, and share-worthy book.. Accessible, inspirational, and share-worthy book. I could not more highly recommend this book for those interested in destroying what has otherwise held you back. You will certainly find yourself writing passages down and highlighting like a college student. Treat yourself to this book, and make it an actual book. You will want to be that connected to the words.

Must read. I never leave comments, but this is a must read.

speechless. Me gusto mucho este libro que me recomendo Carolina mi amiga. -Luis Mendez

Highly recommended. This book exceeded expectations. It lended insight to my own lack of awareness in how powerful a role ego has played in my life. Some areas that I’d mislabeled, turned out to be the ego in disguise.

Just Great. Definitely going on the list of my all time favorites.

Enlightened. This was one of the best books I’ve ever read along with The Obstacle is the Way. I am so enlightened and full of hope and new self commitments to becoming a better human.

Perspective. We all grew up thinking passion was a beautiful thing, not realizing we inhibit selfish tendencies from it. Touching on so many points that made me evaluate myself as a 25 year old, clearly I have a long way to go until I reach where I want to be. This book made me more excited about my development instead of worrying. 30 stars if I could and I thank you.

Good Book, Bad Performance. Enjoyed the book’s content, but found the narrator’s voice grating. Would be better if re-recorded with a professional voice actor.

Incredible.. Wisdom

Absolutely Amazing!. This book provides insight into the human psyche that most of us wouldn’t dare to ponder. Truly incredible, especially if you’re seeking for constant self-improvement.

Just what my ego needed. I always knew I had an ego, but I didn't call It that, I called it confidence. This booked came into my life at a perfect time, before I lost everything and everyone close to me. Wish I would have found it earlier though. Better late than never right? :)

Great book!. You have to read this book!If you think you don’t have an ego problem then you have to read it twice :)

🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯. It took 3 years for me to finish reading this e-book. 1. What I liked? Everything. 2. What I didn’t like? That it took me 3 years to humble myself to actually read/highlight it. It thought that by buying it would be enough. Now the challenge is to re-read it over and over again (sweep over and over again) for the rest of our lives.

The Mirror. This book allowed me to have a guide to self reflection. It helped me understand things I may have not understood about myself. I share excerpts from the book every chance I get.

Ego is the Enemy. Incredible book full of wisdom and real life examples of the messages it is trying to deliver. It spoke to me on multiple levels and will remain by my bedside (with The Obstacle is the Way) forever. I have already given copies of a few on my team at work who I think will benefit from it. The whole team will receive a copy at our off-site retreat in November.

Must Read. Just what I needed. This books speaks to me that will likely change my life. Salute to Ryan Holiday.

Booger fart. Farty pants

Dangerously therapeutic. The first chapters of this book were uncomfortable to read. Ryan seems to have placed a magnifying glass on your soul as he combs through its intricate insecurities. Eventually, you realize it's your ego fighting back in denial. As you read through, a framework for managing the enemy emerges and you walk away better equipped for what lies ahead. The more uncomfortable you are reading this book, the more you need it.
