Product description

Review

"In this age of manufactured outrage and constant distraction, the ability to choose a focused inner stillness is arguably more important than ever before. Ryan Holiday's book revives ancient wisdom that calls for a quiet life in a noisy and restless world."
--Mark Manson, #1 bestselling author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

"The next Malcolm Gladwell. Ryan Holiday's just brilliant."
--Lance Armstrong

"Whether you are an athlete, an investor, a writer or an entrepreneur, this little but wise and soulful book will open the door to a healthier, less anxious and more productive life and career."
--Arianna Huffington

"Some authors give advice. Ryan Holiday distills wisdom. This book is a must read for anyone feeling overwhelmed by the frenetic demands of modern life."
--Cal Newport, New York Times bestselling author of Digital Minimalism

"Don't be fooled. Within the pages of this unassuming little book lie a life-changing idea: that in order to move forward, we must learn to be still. Ryan Holiday has done it again."
--Sophia Amoruso, Co-Founder & CEO, Girlboss

"This short and entertaining book provides useful tools and captivating examples on how to keep a healthy, clutter-free and productive mind.
--Manu Ginobili, four time NBA champion and Olympic Gold Medalist

"Ryan Holiday is among the most psychologically wise writers I know. I'm a fan of all of his work, including this new gem, Stillness is the Key. If you struggle--as I do--to find your center in the increasingly noisy and frenetic world we live in, then this book is for you."
--Angela Duckworth, bestselling author of Grit

"In the world today the dangers are many--most notably, the endless distractions and petty battles that make us act without purpose or direction. In this book, through his masterful synthesis of Eastern and Western philosophy, Ryan Holiday teaches us all how to maintain our focus and presence of mind amid the sometimes overwhelming conflicts and troubles of 21st-century life."
--Robert Greene

"Ryan Holiday is one of the brilliant writers and minds of our time. In Stillness is the Key he gives us the blueprint to clear our minds, recharge our souls and reclaim our power."
--Jon Gordon, author of The Energy Bus

"Highly recommended. Great read."
--CJ McCollum, Portland Trailblazers

"Ryan Holiday is a national treasure and a master in the field of self-mastery. In his most compelling book yet, he has mined both the classical literature of the ancient world and cultural touchstones from Mister Rogers to Tiger Woods, and brought his learnings to us in terms that the frantic, distracted, over-caffeinated modern mind can understand and put to use. Highly recommended."
--Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of The War of Art and The Artist's Journey

"A timely, vividly realized reminder to slow down and harness the restorative wonders of serenity."
--Kirkus Reviews
