About this ebook

The latest groundbreaking tome from Tim Ferriss, the #1 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 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 created this book, my ultimate notebook of high-leverage tools, for myself. It’s changed my life, and I hope the same for you.”

Editor's Note

Wealth of wisdom…

A wealth of wisdom from Ferriss and various guests from his popular podcast. Ferriss and company have learned how to hack their bodies and minds, and share their tips throughout the book. A great reference for a successful year.

    way too much information
  • Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
    The size of the book is intimidating, I found myself wondering how long it would take to get through it. However I found it a fairly quick read and one maybe to keep around for reference and inspiration. I don't know a lot about Tim Ferriss but he seems to come from the motivational group ala Tony Robbins type.There are an amazing variety of successful people gathered here for bits and pieces of advice and guidance on what has worked for them as well as their experiences. Some of it has been out there for some time other things new and innovative. I liked their favorite books recommendations for further reading. Also I have tried out some of the techniques and applications with interesting results.

    This book is big enough to sub as the kettlebells needed for some of the exercised described in the Healthy section. The other two sections - Wealthy and Wise - are about entrepreneurship and finding meaning. I dashed through all 600+ pages in the course of two domestic flights. Ferriss' has distilled all of his interviews and interactions with noteworthy people down into the most novel and powerful ideas. It would be impossible to read and not find at least a handful of ideas to try.

    There are so many great take outs from this book. Its a shotgun blast of ideas and techniques. There is definitely something for everyone and lots for most people. I initially got the Kindle edition so I could start reading as soon as possible and have since bought the hard back so I can take notes and highlight. Highly recommend. Lots of life changing ideas.

    Ferriss's book is a smorgasbord of ideas, strategies, philosophies and resources on how to live one's life. They were culled from a variety of business, entertainment, athletic and cultural leaders including Scott Adams, Kevin Costner, Malcolm Gladwell, Seth Godin, Sam Harris, Tony Robbins, Chris Sacca, and Peter Thiel. This is not the type of book that you read from cover to cover but one that you sift and skim through for ideas and thoughts that interest you. The book is over 670 pages and I found about three quarters of it to be interesting even for an older reader like myself who does not really rely on ca
