Original Book Summary Overview
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.

terrible terrible narrator!

This is my first fast read book. I thought the essence and the format were excellent and I would have rated it higher. But the narrator was absolutely terrible. I cannot understand how this person or persons were selected. sorry for the negativity but I wanted to warn you so you would be aware.
