Description

The Obstacle is the Way: The Ancient Art of Turning Adversity to Advantage is a one-of-a-kind self-help book by bestselling author and renowned media strategist, Ryan Holiday.

Summary of the Book

The Obstacle is the Way is a book about being ruthlessly optimistic and rational in life. We tend to get easily dejected, disappointed and frustrated by our failures and eventually give up too easily. The author argues that with a simple change in our perspective and attitude, what seems like challenging obstacles become once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. This book provides the precise formula for success which has been followed by the icons of history, from John D. Rockefeller and Amelia Earhart to Ulysses S. Grant and Steve Jobs. This book will teach you to get unstuck and to unleash your true potential. The author draws on the philosophical principles laid down by a Roman emperor who strived hard to come up with a method for excellence. Bite-sized and intensely written, this book will teach you the formula of turning your adversity into an advantage.

Amazing book

I really like this book, there are certain points which are not found in other books like focusing more on present situations rather than worrying for future outcomes.
Also liked some of the phrases, That are Action and failure are two sides of coin.
There are so many other things you would find in the book which will lift your morale.

Go and get this book
