Bestselling author Ryan Holiday made old wisdom wildly famous with a new generation of pioneers in athletics, politics, and technology in The Challenge Is the Path and Ego Is the Enemy. Holiday draws on timeless Stoic and Buddhist philosophy in his latest book, Stillness Is the Answer, to explain that calming down is the hidden weapon for those charging ahead.

One indelible characteristic is shared by all great politicians, thinkers, artists, athletes, and visionaries. It makes it easier for them to overcome their tempers. To discourage distraction and to seek outstanding observations. In order to gain peace and do the right thing. It is called stillness by Ryan Holiday—to be steady as the world turns around you.

He outlines a direction in this book to attain this old, but desperately necessary, way of life. Drawing on a wide variety of history's greatest philosophers, from Confucius to Seneca, Marcus Aurelius to Thich Nhat Hanh, John Stuart Mill to Nietzsche, he argues that stillness is not mere inactivity, but the doorway to self-mastery, concentration, and concentration.

Holiday also explores figures that exemplified the strength of silence: baseball player Sadaharu Oh, whose study of Zen made him the greatest home run hitter of all time; Winston Churchill, who spent time laying bricks and painting at his Chartwell estate in juggling his busy public life, succeeded in saving the earth from extinction in the process; Fred Rogers, who educated millions of children

People are overwhelmed more than ever. They are faced with challenges and egos and rivalry. A easy yet motivating solution to the tension of 24/7 news and social media is offered by Stillness Is the Secret. In a world that wants more of it than ever, the stillness we all pursue is the road to meaning, contentment, and excellence.
