‘A book for the bedside of every leader in the world’ –Robert Greene, author of The 48 Laws of Power and Mastery


“Ryan brings philosophy out from the classroom and thrusts it back where it belongs, in our daily lives, helping anyone approaching any problem address it with equanimity and poise. A kind of user’s manual for life, you will turn to it time and time again and learn to tear through any obstacle and resolve any conflict. An absolute must-read.” –JIMMY SONI, managing editor of The Huffington Post, author of Rome’s Last Citizen


“First came Marcus Aurelius, then Frederick the Great…. and now there’s you. This surprising book shows you how to craft a life of wonder by embracing obstacles and challenge.” -CHRIS GUILLEBEAU, author of The $100 Startup


“In this tight, engaging book, Ryan Holiday shines a bright, powerful light on the path to living and leading well. By showing us how to turn failure, obstacles, and plain old everyday frustration to our advantage, he offers up a host of easy-to-use tactics that each of us can put to work to follow our dreams. Read it, learn from it, and get cracking!” -NANCY F. KOEHN, historian and leadership expert, Harvard Business School


“My life has been beset with obstacles. It takes practice (and pain) to surmount them and achieve success. Ryan’s book is a how-to guide for just that.” -JAMES ALTUCHER, investor and author of Choose Yourself


“If there’s such a thing as a cargo-pocket handbook for Jedi knights, this is it. Ryan Holiday’s The Obstacle is the Way decants in concentrated form the timeless techniques for self-mastery as employed to world-conquering effect by philosophers and men of action from Alexander the Great to Marcus Aurelius to Steve Jobs. Follow these precepts and you will revolutionize your life. As Mr. Holiday writes, ‘It’s simple, it’s just not easy? Read this book!” -STEVEN PRESSFIELD, author of The War of Art and Gates of Fire

The great men and women of this world didn’t have exceptional luck, talent or experience. All they did was live by a single maxim: ‘What stands in the way becomes the way.

The philosophy built around this simple principle was invented more than 2,000 years ago and has been proven in battles and boardrooms ever since. In The Obstacle is the Way, internationally renowned marketing guru and bestselling author Ryan Holiday reframes this forgotten formula for success in today’s world and reveals how:

  • John D. Rockefeller saw opportunity in adversity and got rich in a recession
  • Gandhi played to his weaknesses and turned the British Empire’s military might against it
  • Steve Jobs made the impossible possible

Manage your perceptions. Recognise when you can change things. Direct your actions. And learn to turn every obstacle to your advantage.
