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. (Grit)
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.
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 twenty-first-century life.

A timely, vividly realized reminder to slow down and harness the restorative wonders of serenity.
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. (The Energy Bus)
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, overcaffeinated modern mind can understand and put to use. Highly recommended. (The War of Art)
