    In Ego is the Enemy, Ryan Holiday explores how the poison of ego shrouds everyday life and hinders mastery and success. He defines ego as the child inside each of us that insists on getting its way and becoming superior to everyone else. Ego keeps you from forming meaningful relationships, from realizing the extent of your skills, from learning and from discovering the opportunities around you. Guarding against ego requires constant practice. The payoff is in becoming a happier, balanced, content, humble and selfless person.

    This book is different from other management books because it addresses problems that other books don't. It teaches you how to deal with the hard things. So, what are the hard things? Setting a big goal and getting your employees to achieve it is not a hard thing; the hard thing is when you miss that goal and have to lay people off. Other management books try to present a recipe for dealing with situations that have no recipes. There are no recipes for building a start-up or composing a hit single, or running for the president of the United States. That's the hard thing about hard things. 

    Please Note: This is a summary, analysis and review of the book and not the original book. It is meant as a supplement to, not a replacement for, The Hard Thing About Hard Things.

    Hillbilly Elegy is a powerful, riveting memoir that tells us about J.D. Vance’s journey from a young, troubled boy to a graduate of Yale Law School. He grew up in Appalachia - in a small town that was drug-torn and filled with misery. It’s very difficult to discern the discontent and rage coming from the working-class whites in modern America, but this audiobook helps you understand why they behave the way they do. Yes, they may seem like a "bunch of lunatics," but at the end of the day, they are just like us.
