Ego Is The Enemy: The Fight to Master Our Greatest Opponent
by Ryan Holiday

Ego is the Enemy

“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.”

The prologue of Ego Is The Enemy sets the scene for a dynamic exploration of this intriguing facet of the human condition – and how it can thwart success. Holiday’s insightful book draws on examples from history and looks at iconic figures such as Eleanor Roosevelt and Howard Hughes. 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.”
