Cheri Reviews Ego is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday

Ego Is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I stumbled upon Ryan Holiday on YouTube and come back to watch his videos regularly. Stoicism has already been a big help to me. My brain thrives on being anxious about things I can’t control. I also caught myself dealing with some ego issues this morning. Seemed like a great opportunity to give a listen to Ego is the Enemy.

After getting to know how Holiday puts his books together through his Daily Stoic videos, it’s pretty much exactly what I expected. Lots of lessons from and quotes by famous folks. Nothing wrong with that and I did get some good info out of the book.

I think others can get a lot out of Holiday’s knowledge and experience. This is mostly filled with stories of historically significant events and biographies that give the reader some great examples of how ego can seriously get in the way. There’s other good stuff in there, too.

If that’s what you’re looking for, give it a listen or read it with your eyeballs. I’m used to the author’s voice and mannerisms from all of the videos so I went with the audio and am happy with that choice.
