Ego Is the Enemy

by Ryan Holiday

Ego Is the Enemy

Ryan Holiday

Overview

Ryan Holiday is a marketing mastermind. Having apprenticed under Robert Greene who wrote The 48 Laws of Power, he went on to become Director of Marketing for American Apparel. Ryan's pulled crazy PR stunts for big brands and authors, but around 2010, his focus shifted.

Since then, he's published 11 books, many of which center around stoicism. Today, he lives a humble life in Texas, and spends a lot of his time writing. Reining in your ego helps you in both good and bad times, because you'll neither stress about failures, nor let success turn you into a diva.
