I’m not one to write critical reviews of writers, especially ones that I’ve enjoyed. His media influence is less of an issue for me and I’ve considered deleting that part from this blog post (perhaps I should).
The main issue I had was that article that Holiday published on what a little bit of time is for him. I understand that people are busy, but it’s important to not lose your humanity in your success. And even Casey Neistat (who has quoted Holiday and is friendly with him) said that he wouldn’t go far as saying that.
I choose not to be hostile and negative because we have enough of that in this world, but still, I think this is balanced because I do think that Ego is the Enemy is a fantastic book. You should definitely check it out.
Thanks for the feedback brother.
