    Viktor Frankl's memoir, Man's Search for Meaning is about so much more than one man's experiences in a concentration camp. As a book about the Holocaust, it helps to shed light on the day-to-day struggles that inmates faced physically, psychologically, and socially. But it also reaches far beyond camp life and into the meaning of life itself.

    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.
