Stillness Is the Key by Ryan Holiday Book Summary

Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller & Wall Street Journal Bestseller

In The Obstacle Is the Way and Ego Is the Enemy, bestselling 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 book, 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.

The Essence of Zen and Non-Action in Bite-Sized Portions. I was very impressed with Ego is the Enemy and The Obstacle is the Way, so I had high expectations for this book. Holiday did not disappoint. I was able to pick this book up and put it back down many times without losing the general idea. I found the information on Tiger Woods’ lifestyle to be perhaps the most entertaining and informative. The pieces on Zen Buddhism, Wu-Wei, and Non Action were not only enlightening but therapeutic. In a world where we are constantly told to Go-Go-Go and do More-More-More, it is interesting to hear an argument for the opposite perspective. My favorite element of this book overall, is the way Ryan expertly weaves together so many different philosophies and religions to form a thought; convincing the reader further that there are many paths to Enlightenment. Thank you Ryan; I am big fan of your work and consider myself a more useful man, and a more peaceful and generally-better human for having read it... particularly your work in Stoicism. Thank you and your team again and again.

Full of paradigm shifts. This book is a manuscript on how to live a life of peace and stillness and happiness. Easily relatable with examples throughout history and chocked full of paradigm shifts. I just finished reading but I already want to read it again.

Amazing!. Superb book! Great mindset from many leaders

A great read.. I enjoyed every page.

This book has changed my perspective. The timing of picking up this book was no accident!

Couldnt put it down. i read the book as if it was a guide in life. I would read it at night and the ideas would set me for a better tomorrow. it would bring excitment for the following day because it meant at night more lessons would be learned. thank you Mr. Holiday

Great book. A really good book about how much more important inner peace is than outer comfort.

It's ok. I kinda like it but not that much but I enjoyed it

Puts things into perspective. This book really puts the things we all encounter in life into perspective. Seek solitude, avoiding escapism...etc. This book is a must read if you want to broaden the “real” perspective of life. Great Book!!

Praise From a student at The Schulich School Of Music. Professor Holiday as I’ve dubbed him, is a true word smith with a unique ability to deliver philosophical wisdom to the masses. Look, I’m gonna out you here fellow musicians and other artists alike, for a lot of us mental health is a struggle. Anxiety, depression, etc. If you’re willing to fully commit to reading and digesting this material, as you would any textbook your life depended on understanding for you to graduate, you will find peace. Just as improving our craft takes 10,000 hours, we must approach our mental health in the same manor lest we become just another washed up has been. You can do this! Just like practicing proper form makes us better musicians, writers, painters, dancers, etc, practicing mental resilience and stillness will make us better people! “Well-being is realized by small steps, but it is no small thing”-Zeno, Founder of The Stoic School Farewell

Stillness is the key. A great read for anyone trying to find that quiet place inside themselves to become a better person and more at peace in this crazy world. Ryan Holiday as a particular way of bridging generations of stoic (and other) philosophers together to help provide people today with an excellent blueprint for finding stillness in themselves for what ever type of life they’re living. Highly recommend any and all of his writing!
