Review

In this age of manufactured outrage and constant distraction, the ability to choose the focused inner stillness that Ryan champions is more important than ever. (The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck)

Ryan's trilogy of <i>The Obstacle is the Way</i>, <i>Ego is the Enemy</i> and <i>Stillness is the Key</i> are for sure must-reads.<b></b>

Whether you are an athlete, an investor, a writer or an entrepreneur, this little but soulful book will open the door to a healthier, less anxious and more productive life and career.<b></b>

Some authors give advice. Ryan Holiday distills wisdom. This book is a must read. (Digital Minimalism)

Ryan Holiday is among the most psychologically wise writers I know. I'm a fan of all of his work, including this new gem, <i>Stillness is the Key</i>. If you struggle-as I do-to find your center in the increasingly noisy and frenetic world we live in, then this book is for you. (Grit)

Don't be fooled. Within the pages of this unassuming little book lie a life-changing idea: that in order to move forward, we must learn to be still. Ryan Holiday has done it again.

In the world today the dangers are many-most notably, the endless distractions and petty battles that make us act without purpose or direction. In this book, through his masterful synthesis of Eastern and Western philosophy, Ryan Holiday teaches us all how to main­tain our focus and presence of mind amid the sometimes over­whelming conflicts and troubles of twenty-first-century life. (The 48 Laws of Power)

A timely, vividly realized reminder to slow down and harness the restorative wonders of serenity.

Ryan Holiday is one of the brilliant writers and minds of our time. In <i>Stillness Is the Key </i>he gives us the blueprint to clear our minds, re­charge our souls, and reclaim our power. (The Energy Bus)

Ryan Holiday is a national treasure and a master in the field of self-mastery. In his most compelling book yet, he has mined both the classical literature of the ancient world and cultural touchstones from Mister Rogers to Tiger Woods, and brought his learnings to us in terms that the frantic, distracted, overcaffeinated modern mind can understand and put to use. Highly recommended. (The War of Art)

Highly recommended. Great read.

<p>Praise for Ryan Holiday:<br>'[Ryan is a] self-help sage, who is now a sought-after guru to NFL coaches, Olympians, hip-hop stars, and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs . . . [he] translates Stoicism, which had counted emperors and states­men among its adherents during antiquity, into pithy catchphrases and digestible anecdotes for ambitious, twenty-first-century life hackers.</p> (New York Times)

The next Malcolm Gladwell. Ryan Holiday's just brilliant.

Holiday is an out-of-the-box thinker who likes to take chances. (New York Times Book Review)

I don't have many rules in life, but one I never break is: If Ryan Holi­day writes a book, I read it as soon as I can get my hands on it. (Rounders, Ocean’s Thirteen, Billions)

Ryan Holiday is one of the most promising young writers of his gen­eration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Before you buy!!!
By Aman Rana on 31 May 2021
Okay so yeahhh why did they add this one in Business Genre? After reading it like thrice I still feel it's should be in like Self-help Self-help genre or Stoicism kind of genres.

➡️ So The book has small chapters, divided into various topics, topics we often want to read about but couldn't find all that in one book. Written in easy language which makes it better to read even if you're just a beginner feel free to read this one.

➡️ He has talked about many points or topics that are part of our daily life, our relations, our problems, our emotional instabilities, desires and many more. He'll start chapter with someone's life story and will tell to about his highs and flaws which helps to relate more and under the topic well and at the and he'll tell you what's right thing that you can do to avoid those problems in your life.

➡️ He has used examples of Stoicism, buddhism, Hinduism ( Bhagwat Gita ) to describ his point briefly in front of reader.
Also he's mentioned the names of books from where you can read briefly about these ' isms '

➡️ What i like about book is the simplicity of it, very easy to read and understand you don't have to read it from 1st to last. You pick any chapter randomly and read it that it. No pressure to start from start, just choose the topic you want to learn or read about and read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book is a quick read but you should not finish reading it quickly.
By Rakesh Prasad on 14 September 2021
Ryan Holiday takes the teachings of Stoics, Bhagvad Gita, and Budhism along with historical events to show us why it pays to practice Stillness. He writes on the cover - The Ancient Strategy for Modern Life.

The 257 page book is divided in 3 parts - Mind, Spirit, and Body. Each part has small chapters that tell us how we can achieve stillness in our daily life.

Sprinkled with wisdoms of great personalities who walked on earth across centuries, this book is filled with actionable that we can start practicing once we begin reading the book one chapter at a time, picking up the wisdom that attracts us.

In all, 'Stillness is the key' is a book that you study, underline key wisdoms, take notes, meditate on it and put your learnings into action. You just cannot simply read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, Thought-Provoking and Practical - Worth a Read
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 October 2019
Distracted minds are commonplace in today's world.

With information overload, lots of people have forgotten how to be more present and in the moment. Maybe this is why mindfulness has become so popular. Boredom is something that people hate with a device needed to keep us company and our minds indulged, even when waiting in the shortest of queues or period of inactivity.

From a peak performance perspective, stillness as Ryan describes it becomes really important to maintain focus and presence during overwhelming chaos and stress.

This is a small book but packed with richness. Ryan uses stories of Abraham Lincoln, John F Kennedy, Marina Abramovic, Napoleon, Shawn Green, Fred Rogers, Anne Frank, Socrates, John Cage, Awa Kenzo, Marcus Aurelius, Tiger Woods, Seneca, Leonardo da Vinci, Michael Jordan, Winston Churchill, Epictetus, William Gladstone and many others.

Ryan uses these to demonstrate how important stillness is for self-mastery, discipline and focus in this noisy world.

The book divided into three parts:

1. Mind
2. Spirit
3. Body

Each part has several chapters making the case for stillness and giving life practices that can help to practically develop stillness.

I do feel that the book could have more practical tips but for me it really does help with stirring the emotions and helping to really value the importance of stillness in my life and finding ways to develop this.

For me this topic is really important. I previously read Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport and have also pre-ordered Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Indistractable-Control-Your-Attention-Choose/dp/1526610221/

I will be reading this book a few times to inspire me and develop practices to help me as I try to navigate this world of chaos. I recommend this if this is the journey you are also looking to take.
