Publisher's Summary

The latest groundbreaking tome from Tim Ferriss, the number-one New York Times best-selling author of The 4-Hour Workweek

From the author: 

"For the last two years, I've interviewed more than 200 world-class performers for my podcast, The Tim Ferriss Show. The guests range from super celebs (Jamie Foxx, Arnold Schwarzenegger, etc.) and athletes (icons of powerlifting, gymnastics, surfing, etc.) to legendary Special Operations commanders and black-market biochemists. For most of my guests, it’s the first time they’ve agreed to a two-to-three-hour interview. This unusual depth has helped make The Tim Ferriss Show the first business/interview podcast to pass 100 million downloads. 

"This book contains the distilled tools, tactics, and 'inside baseball' you won't find anywhere else. It also includes new tips from past guests, and life lessons from new 'guests' you haven't met.   

"What makes the show different is a relentless focus on actionable details. This is reflected in the questions. For example: What do these people do in the first 60 minutes of each morning? What do their workout routines look like, and why? What books have they gifted most to other people? What are the biggest wastes of time for novices in their field? What supplements do they take on a daily basis? 

"I don't view myself as an interviewer. I view myself as an experimenter. If I can't test something and replicate results in the messy reality of everyday life, I'm not interested."

"Everything [in this audiobook] has been vetted, explored, and applied to my own life in some fashion. I've used dozens of the tactics and philosophies in high-stakes negotiations, high-risk environments, or large business dealings. The lessons have made me millions of dollars and saved me years of wasted effort and frustration. 

"I created this book, my ultimate notebook of high-leverage tools, for myself. It's changed my life, and I hope the same for you."

Not supposed to be an audiobook

This book might be good in the written format but is very difficult to follow as an audiobook. Too many quotes, websites, lists and the overall format make it a bad choice for an audiobook. The attached reading material doesn't help either.

Not your normal book

This is an interesting book and should be used as a reference guide rather than a cover to cover read. I have read reviews where listeners have given a poor review with it being a difficult book to listen to. There is some truth to this however the data in this book is excellent and extremely valuable. It should be thought of as a distillation of decades of personal experience from leaders in their fields with references to workable technologies and experiences that can be applied to ones life. There are not many places one can find access to data like this. It further serves as a wonderful starting guide to further research into data and fields that one finds interesting. Take Tim Ferriss’ guide on how to use this book to heart, skip sections of no interest and use those that fit your interests and research. I hope that helps others looking to purchase this book and to manage expectations. For me it has been well worth it.

A product endorsement fest

This book sounded promising, but soon enough it got on the nose. It has so much product endorsement that made me sick if it; I had enough, so put to a side. Sadly, it also fell short of being insightful.

Audio book fail

its a real shame as I'm a big fan of Tim and his work. but although the physical book is probably a great reference, the audio version falls short. Most particularly the way each person's name, twitter handle, social media address etc is read off makes the listening experience akin to listening to a person read the phone book :( . The excessive amounts of awe and compliment tim pays each person is very nice, but also comprises the listeners experience as it gets boring and detracts from tims goal to teach the listener a valuable life lesson (or was his goal to plug the businesses and celebrity profiles of these ppl ??). Just as well audible made it a free book, not worth the money in audio version.

Great nuggets of insight!

At first I was a bit daunted by the length of this one and was trying to listen from start to finish. But I quickly realised the way to get the best out of this audiobook is to dip into certain sections that feel more relevant to me and cherry pick the great stuff. Once I did that, everything became a bit more digestible and I found many parts really useful for stuff I could use day-to-day.

A current day bible

Thank you Tim for the wisdom shared in this book. I laughed, cried, took notes, wrote blog articles and posts along the way to share your wisdom and that of your guests. I’ve just finished listening for the first time and am about to press play again on this current day Bible. Keep on writing so we can keep learning from the Titans around you.
