Product Description

A timeless trilogy of the extraordinary bestsellers The Obstacle is the Way, Ego is the Enemy, and Stillness is the Key by Ryan Holiday, now available for the first time ever in a beautiful boxed set edition.

For more than two thousand years, Stoic philosophy has been the secret operating system of wise leaders, artists, athletes, brilliant thinkers, and ordinary citizens. With his acclaimed, bestselling books The Obstacle is the Way, Ego is the Enemy, and Stillness is the Key, Ryan Holiday has helped bring the Stoicism of Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, and Epictetus to hundreds of thousands of new readers all over the world.

The Obstacle is the Way teaches you how to let go of the things you can''t control and turn every new obstacle into an opportunity to get better, stronger, and tougher . Ego is the Enemy teaches you how to overcome and master the greatest obstacle in life--our insatiable ego. Stillness is the Key teaches you why slowing down is essential to charging ahead.

This boxed set offers the Stoic insights and exercises from all three books featuring a vast array of stories and examples, from literature to philosophy to history.

If you or anyone you know are seeking inner peace, clarity, and effectiveness in our crazy world, this collection will help immensely and makes a great gift. It will help you find the serenity, self-knowledge, and resilience you need to live well.

This box set by author Ryan Holiday was unfortunately a disappointment. I had heard great reviews about his books and especially after hearing him on Jay Sherry’s podcast wanted to read his works.

I started with Stillness is the Key. Although the message is a great one I just felt like I was reading quotes from other people and snippets of others lives. It didn’t really tie together for me. The chapters are really too short and the organization of the book was lacking. I felt jumbled after putting it down. I don’t know that I’ll read the other two. Disappointing for sure.

When I opened the box I was a little shocked at the size of the books. These hardcover books are smaller than paperback books. The picture makes them look like 3 normal sized hardcover books (and no reason to believe differently) but they are literally 1/3 size smaller, paperback books are larger than these. The normal price is something like $75 which they would NEVER sell for if someone saw them in person. I''m not sure why they are published so small but, without even reading the content yet, I''m am disappointed. Also, as a previous reviewer mentions, they barely fit into the box, it is soooo tight.

The books I received were NOT the Boxed Set advertised (and pictured). While I did receive all 3 books, they were labeled as ''this Edition is for sale in India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. Not for export elsewhere''. I live in the US. I am unaware if these copies are censored in any way. It also took nearly a month for them to arrive, after having to order them TWICE.

I have been a fan of Ryan Holiday''s for a bit now, these are my favorite from his collection.

I purchased them as a gift for my brother, but hadn''t read the third book, "Stillness is Key"...
..I almost opened it early to get a sneak peak.

In these times, I think it is refreshing to hear from the Stoics and try to relate to the resilience of hardships. These books always help me keep a level-headed perspective and it''s nice to have them all in one package.

Besides...wouldn''t they be a nice addition to your video call background?

Love this set from Ryan Holiday. For those who are looking for a modern take on the outlook of the great stoics, these books will not disappoint. The original Stoic translations can be difficult to cipher as their language and terminology is from so long ago. In these books Ryan gives a current view with new age examples of the great stoic teachers. For anyone looking to delve into the world of Stoicism as a philosophy for their life, these books are an excellent starting point. I''ve purchased them also for my kids who amaze me with their new outlook on life. So much to enjoy in this wonderful set.

The books have a paper wrap cover around a plain yellow and plain white cover and so you can’t comfortably read the books with those covers and it doesn’t make sense to take te he covers off every time you gonna read them. I would rather have a paperback instead of this as it makes it look cheap unprofessional and unpractical.

Great books, the quality is good and the size is really handy to travel with as they aren''t real large. I''m only 3/4 into stillness is key right now but I''ve read the rest and have loved them. Recommended for sure.
