This book is about 5lbs and worth more than its weight in gold...

I have no doubt that you're busy. And I also have no doubt that you want to succeed in life. And I imagine that the last thing you want to do right now is go out and spend $28 on a 678-page book. But that's exactly what I'm suggesting you do! The ROI (Return On Investment) of Tim Ferriss' latest book will pay you back over and over again throughout the years...

There's so much going on in this book that you cannot possibly read it in even a few long sittings. Each main chapter has highlights of interviews from his amazing podcast, the Tim Ferriss Show, deconstructing the "tactics, routines, and habits of billionaires, icons, and world-class performers." The BEST PART is the beginning where he gives you two rules for reading his book: skip around liberally, and skip around, but do so intelligently.

He divides the book into three sections-- Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise.

Each interview within is a treasure of knowledge, experience, advice, and expertise. One of the best ways to become anything in life, whether it's to be happy, successful, or wealthy, is to model others who have accomplished the things you are going after.

Do you want to start a business? Find a mentor that has been running a business for over 5 years and offer to sweep floors for free and see what knowledge you can soak up. Do you want to become a better ball player? Look for the guys on the court who have the skills and mimic their movements. Don't study Nascar if you're learning to box!

Reading the Tools of Titans is like having a buffet of successful habits, mindsets, tactics, tricks, and more at your fingertips from the people that have accomplished greatness. Plus you get some extras that Tim throws in to give you even more of a boost in your journey to "get sh*t done." Such gems include 8 Tactics for Dealing with Haters and 5 Morning Rituals that Help Me Win the Day.

The beautiful part about learning from people in all of these different fields (investing, movies, standup comedy, entrepreneurism, champion chess, Navy Seals, etc) is that the skills and lessons they share with us are transferable to whatever we're involved in. Arnold Schwarzenegger's determination, Jamie Foxx's work ethic, and Shaun White's mindset before a competition-- all of these are available to you, the reader.
