I have been following Tim Ferriss lately. So far, I like his books. His latest book, “Tools of the Titans” is intriguing.
He coined the term “The New Rich” back in 2008. He explored what’s referred to now as Gen-x. The group of us between the ages of 35 – 50. They are entrepreneurial, ready to work hard but limit the time to gain wealth. The 4-hour work day, owning their business and loving life. Loving life means focusing on the things that are truly meaningful. We all talk about them, but few attain the satisfaction of knowing we spent enough time with our spouse – we are truly friends, enough time with our children – we are truly parents, enough time aiding and supporting our community – we are truly good neighbors.
Start YOUR business NOW:
And… becoming wealthy in the process (both in time, fame, reputation and money). Building successful businesses that employee others as the W-2 earners while we train them to trust them for operations and promotion. Here is the verbiage from the author himself on his latest book. Please see below for several of his accomplishment. Please enjoy them all.
about tools of titans
from the author, Jimmy Ferriss:
“For the last two years, I’ve interviewed nearly two hundred 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, and the show is on the cusp of passing 100 million downloads.”
“Tools of Titans” 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 podcast and this book different is a relentless focus on actionable details. This is reflected in the questions. For example: What do these people do in the first sixty 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 within these pages 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 wrote “Tools of Titans”, my ultimate notebook of high-leverage tools, for myself. It’s changed my life, and I hope the same for you.”
