Livros de Ryan Holiday
Ele arruinou a carreira de gênios promissores. Mandou pelos ares grandes fortunas e destruiu empresas. Tornou as adversidades insuportáveis e transformou esforço em vergonha.
Seu nome? Ego.
O ego é um adversário interno citado por quase todos os grandes filósofos da história, em incontáveis obras de arte, de todas as culturas e todos os tempos.
E agora vamos aprender a destruí-lo, antes que ele destrua você.
Em O ego é seu inimigo, Holiday apresenta exemplos reais e inspiradores de pessoas comuns que dominaram o ego, chegaram aos mais altos níveis de poder e sucesso e se tornaram lendas — não pela fama, mas pelo trabalho e legado. Ao perceber a influência negativa do ego e combatê-lo, você será capaz de viver melhor e conquistar resultados mais expressivos. As estratégias e táticas desenvolvidas por essas figuras fascinantes vão ajudá-lo a vencer esse inimigo tão poderoso que nos desafia todos os dias.
A powerful meditation on the nature and dangers of ego, from the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Stillness is the Key, and Obstacle is the Way - over 1 million copies sold
'Re-read it each year. It's that important' Derek Sivers, author of Anything You Want
'Ryan Holiday is one of his generation's finest thinkers' Steven Pressfield, author of The War of Art
'This is a book I want every athlete, aspiring leader, entrepreneur, thinker and doer to read' George Raveling, Nike's Director of International Basketball
'Inspiring yet practical' Robert Greene, author of The 48 Laws of Power
It's wrecked the careers of promising young geniuses. It's evaporated great fortunes and run companies into the ground. It's made adversity unbearable and turned struggle into shame. Every great philosopher has warned against it, in our most lasting stories and countless works of art, in all culture and all ages. Its name? Ego, and it is the enemy - of ambition, of success and of resilience.
In Ego is the Enemy, Ryan Holiday shows us how and why ego is such a powerful internal opponent to be guarded against at all stages of our careers and lives, and that we can only create our best work when we identify, acknowledge and disarm its dangers. Drawing on an array of inspiring characters and narratives from literature, philosophy and history, the book explores the nature and dangers of ego to illustrate how you can be humble in your aspirations, gracious in your success and resilient in your failures.
The result is an inspiring and timely reminder that humility and confidence are our greatest friends when confronting the challenges of a culture that tends to fan the flames of ego, a book full of themes and life lessons that will resonate, uplift and inspire.

#1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller
'Follow these precepts and you will revolutionize your life.' Steven Pressfield, author of The War of Art
'A book for the bedside of every future - and current - leader in the world.' - Robert Greene, author of The 48 Laws of Power
The Obstacle is the Way has become a cult classic, beloved by men and women around the world who apply its wisdom to become more successful at whatever they do.
The book's many fans include a former governor and movie star (Arnold Schwarzenegger), a hip hop icon (LL Cool J), an Irish tennis pro (James McGee), the World Number 1 golfer (Rory McIlroy) and the coaches and players of winning teams like English Rugby National Team, the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Cubs.
The book draws its inspiration from stoicism, the ancient Greek philosophy of enduring pain or adversity with perseverance and resilience. Stoics focus on the things they can control, let go of everything else, and turn every new obstacle into an opportunity to get better, stronger, tougher. As Marcus Aurelius put it nearly 2000 years ago: "The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way."
Ryan Holiday shows us how some of the most successful people in history-from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Ulysses S. Grant to Steve Jobs-have applied stoicism to overcome difficult or even impossible situations. Their embrace of these principles ultimately mattered more than their natural intelligence, talents, or luck.
If you're feeling frustrated, demoralized, or stuck in a rut, this book can help you turn your problems into your biggest advantages. And along the way it will inspire you with dozens of true stories of the greats from every age and era.
From the team that brought you The Obstacle Is the Way and Ego Is the Enemy, a beautiful daily devotional of Stoic meditations—an instant Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestseller.
Why have history's greatest minds—from George Washington to Frederick the Great to Ralph Waldo Emerson, along with today's top performers from Super Bowl-winning football coaches to CEOs and celebrities—embraced the wisdom of the ancient Stoics? Because they realize that the most valuable wisdom is timeless and that philosophy is for living a better life, not a classroom exercise.
The Daily Stoic offers 366 days of Stoic insights and exercises, featuring all-new translations from the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, the playwright Seneca, or slave-turned-philosopher Epictetus, as well as lesser-known luminaries like Zeno, Cleanthes, and Musonius Rufus. Every day of the year you'll find one of their pithy, powerful quotations, as well as historical anecdotes, provocative commentary, and a helpful glossary of Greek terms.
By following these teachings over the course of a year (and, indeed, for years to come) you'll find the serenity, self-knowledge, and resilience you need to live well.
Throughout history, there has been one quality that great leaders, makers, artists and fighters have shared. The Zen Buddhists described it as inner peace, the Stoics called it ataraxia and Ryan Holiday calls it stillness: the ability to be steady, focused and calm in a constantly busy world.
Drawing on a wide range of history's greatest thinkers, Holiday shows us how crucial stillness is, and how it can be cultivated in our own lives today. Just as Winston Churchill, Oprah Winfrey and baseball player Sadaharu Oh have done, we can all benefit from stillness to feed into our greater ambitions - whether building a business or simply finding happiness, peace and self-direction.
Stillness is the key to the self-mastery, discipline and focus necessary to succeed in this competitive, noisy world.
La llamada del coraje nos llega a cada uno de nosotros una vez en la vida. Si no respondes tú, ¿quién lo hará? Si no es ahora, ¿cuándo?
Ryan Holiday, autor superventas y referente del estoicismo moderno, defiende el coraje como la virtud fundamental para vencer el miedo.
Nada es posible sin la virtud del coraje. Desde los antiguos espartanos hasta el Movimiento por los derechos civiles; desde científicos pioneros hasta empresarios innovadores; desde Charles de Gaulle hasta Florence Nightingale, los grandes líderes han pasado a la historia por los riesgos que se atrevieron a asumir. Sin embargo, hoy somos muchos los que nos vemos paralizados por el miedo.
En este primer libro de una nueva serie sobre las virtudes cardinales del estoicismo, Ryan Holiday nos enseña por qué el coraje es tan importante y cómo cultivarlo en la vida diaria. A partir de las acciones de quienes han respondido a la llamada del destino, Holiday nos muestra cómo podemos dar un paso adelante incluso cuando los demás dan un paso atrás. Porque tener coraje es mucho más que lanzarse al combate. Tener coraje es hacer lo correcto, enfrentarse a las convenciones y defender las propias creencias; es creatividad, generosidad y perseverancia. Y es la única forma de vivir una vida plena, extraordinaria y efectiva.
Todo en la vida empieza con el coraje. Y este libro te dotará de la valentía necesaria para dar el primer paso, para responder a la llamada.
«La llamada del coraje de Ryan Holiday traza la historia del coraje y sus muchas facetas a lo largo de los años y llega al presente con una llamada urgente a la acción para cada uno de nosotros. Cuando nos enfrentemos a nuestros enemigos, tanto internos como externos, ¿acudiremos a la llamada del coraje o agacharemos la cabeza ante los susurros de la cobardía? La respuestaa esta pregunta va más allá del sentido del deber; es nuestra libertad la que está en juego. Va más allá de ganar o perder; es nuestra supervivencia la que está en juego. Depende de mí, depende de ti, depende de todos nosotros. Aceptemos el reto».
Matthew McConaughey, actor ganador de un Oscar y autor bestseller de The New York Times
«En un mundo repleto de personas mortificadas por el miedo y temerosas de dar la cara, nuestra salvación depende de cultivar el coraje en todas las áreas de la vida. Este libro de Ryan Holiday es una clara e inspiradora guía sobre cómo desarrollar esta importante virtud humana».
Robert Greene, autor del bestseller Las 48 leyes del poder
«Ryan Holiday muestra su propio coraje en este libro al no seguir la norma, al enfrentarse al poder con la verdad y al demostrarnos por qué no debemos ceder ante el miedo si queremos avanzar juntos con gracia y humanidad. Recopilando ejemplos de la historia –desde el mundo de la Grecia y la Roma antiguas a Florence Nightingale, hasta su propia crítica del «coraje vacío» de nuestro tiempo– Holiday explica por qué la virtud importa ahora más que nunca».
Nancy Sherman, profesora de Filosofía en la Universidad de Georgetown.
«En esta llamada a actuar de acuerdo con tus convicciones, Holiday se basa en un notable repertorio de personalidades, desde Sócrates hasta Solzhenitsyn.
...comes one of the most incredible stories in all of history. A young boy, out of nowhere, is chosen to be the emperor of most of the known world.
What he learned, what he did, who he was, would echo in eternity.
In 138 AD, Hadrian, the emperor of Rome, chooses Marcus Aurelius to succeed him. He knew no one was born ready for the job, so he arranged for the young boy's education. The greatest philosophers of the day were assigned to teach him, and all threw themselves into crafting him into a great leader.
It's a parable for life: The gods choose something for us, call us to something. Will we answer? Will we step up? Will we achieve the greatness within us?
Marcus Aurelius did. Absolute power not only didn't corrupt, it made him better.
And now, a story for the ages is illustrated and told for all ages in The Boy Who Would Be King.

'Ryan Holiday is a genius.' Chris Evans
'A clear and inspiring guide for how to develop this highest of human virtues.' - Robert Greene
An inspiring anthem to the power, promise, and challenges of courage, the first in a series examining the timeless Stoic virtues from #1 New York Times bestselling author Ryan Holiday
Fortune favours the bold. All great leaders of history have known this, and were successful because of the risks they dared to take. But today so many of us are paralysed by fear.
Drawing on ancient Stoic wisdom and examples across history and around the world, Ryan Holiday shows why courage is so important, and how to cultivate it in our own lives. Courage is not simply physical bravery but also doing the right thing and standing up for what you believe; it's creativity, generosity and perseverance. And it is the only way to live an extraordinary, fulfilled and effective life.
Everything in life begins with courage. This book will equip you with the bravery to begin.
Your new business went online yesterday and you've got a marketing budget of zero. How are you supposed to create a movement around your product? How can you get to your first thousand - or million - customers? Starting from zero, it feels impossible.
Enter the growth hacker. You may not have heard of growth hacking yet, but you've certainly used the billion dollar brands built by it: Hotmail, AirBnB, Facebook, Dropbox, amongst many others.
Growth hackers thrive on doing what traditional businessmen would consider impossible: creating something from nothing. They 'hack' their company's growth to create a narrative of sensational success, turning excited media, users and social media into a viral marketing force that will help their business grow exponentially.
Silicon Valley has realized that growth hacking - not television commercials and billboards - is the successful start-up's secret weapon. Now growth hacker extraordinaire Ryan Holiday is ready to share his experience, teaching you how to harness the power of growth to propel you to success. Featuring insights from leading growth hackers, Growth Hacker Marketing is the essential guide to the revolutionary new approach to growing your business.
Hailed as "astonishing and disturbing" by the Financial Times and "essential reading" by TechCrunch at its original publication, former American Apparel marketing director Ryan Holiday’s first book sounded a prescient alarm about the dangers of fake news. It's all the more relevant today.
Trust Me, I’m Lying was the first book to blow the lid off the speed and force at which rumors travel online—and get "traded up" the media ecosystem until they become real headlines and generate real responses in the real world. The culprit? Marketers and professional media manipulators, encouraged by the toxic economics of the news business.
Whenever you see a malicious online rumor costs a company millions, politically motivated fake news driving elections, a product or celebrity zooming from total obscurity to viral sensation, or anonymously sourced articles becoming national conversation, someone is behind it. Often someone like Ryan Holiday.
As he explains, “I wrote this book to explain how media manipulators work, how to spot their fingerprints, how to fight them, and how (if you must) to emulate their tactics. Why am I giving away these secrets? Because I’m tired of a world where trolls hijack debates, marketers help write the news, opinion masquerades as fact, algorithms drive everything to extremes, and no one is accountable for any of it. I’m pulling back the curtain because it’s time the public understands how things really work. What you choose to do with this information is up to you.”

A New York Times Noteworthy Pick
'In story after page-turning story, Lives of the Stoics brings ancient philosophers to life.' - David Epstein, bestselling author of Range
'Wonderful' - Chris Bosh, two-time NBA Champion
For millennia, Stoicism has been the ancient philosophy that attracts those who seek greatness, from athletes to politicians and everyone in between.

In this book, Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman offer a fresh approach to understanding Stoicism through the lives of the people who practiced it - from Cicero to Zeno, Cato to Seneca, Diogenes to Marcus Aurelius. Through short biographies of all the famous, and lesser-known, Stoics, this book will show what it means to live stoically, and reveal the lessons to be learned from their struggles and successes. The result is a treasure trove of insights for anyone in search of living a good life.
