And, now, Stillness Is the Key.
Ryan is one of my absolute favorite writers. One of the testimonials in the front of the book perfectly captures my sentiment. Screenwriter and director Brian Koppelman (Rounders, Ocean’s Thirteen and Billions) puts it this way: “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.”
Of course, the book’s packed with Big Ideas and I’m excited to share some of my favorites so let’s jump straight in!
Side note: I haven’t chatted with Ryan about it yet (I’m interviewing him in a couple days and I’ll test my hypothesis) but my guess on one of his next books: Being a Dad. I just learned about his fantastic site and newsletter: —which is a sort of Dad version of his site and newsletter. Highly recommend both. In fact, those are the only two daily emails I receive after returning to email post burning the hermitage.)
