Good Ideas Packaged Without Much Inspiration.,

This review is from: The Obstacle is the Way: The Ancient Art of Turning Adversity to Advantage (Hardcover)
A loosely tied collection of quotes from mostly stoic philosophers without much fleshing out or bringing to life of the subjects involved. Other than bundling up a group of great quotes, Ryan Holiday adds very little of value while continually beating the same drum on the same thematic idea over and over until what , handled in a different way, might have served as spiritual lever just comes out as slightly oppressive marketing flavoured conclusions. Hopefully, one of this book's redeeming qualities will be to inspire the reader to go search out the basic foundation material and to read it.
