Ego is the Enemy: The Fight to Master Our Greatest Opponent by Ryan Holiday

Posted at — Oct 31, 2017

A short book about many kinds of illusions you could be fooling yourself with.

It explains how exactly those illusions are detrimental to your progress on anything, and gives some advice as to how to go about shedding them. It’s not a list of concrete exercises though.

Many a time in the book the author stops to ask — what will you choose, what’s it gonna be? Depending on your preferences, you might or might not like that.

Also, the book has not one, but two bibliographies, one of them too huge to fit into the book, and another just endless.
