The newest ground-breaking work by Tim Ferriss, the author of The 4-Hour Workweek, which is the best-selling book on the New York Times list.
From the writer:
“For my podcast, The Tim Ferriss Show, I’ve spoken with more than 200 top performers over the past two years. The guests include legendary Special Operations commanders and gray market biochemists in addition to big stars (Jamie Foxx, Arnold Schwarzenegger, etc.) and athletes (icons of powerlifting, gymnastics, surfing, etc.). Most of my guests have never agreed to a two- to three-hour interview before. This uncommon depth has contributed to The Tim Ferriss Show becoming the first business/interview podcast to surpass 100 million downloads.”
“This book has the condensed methods, strategies, and ‘inside baseball’ that you won’t find anywhere. It also provides fresh advice from former guests and life lessons from brand-new “guests” you haven’t met.”
“A constant focus on practical minutiae distinguishes the show. The questions show how this is. What do these people do during the first hour of every morning, for instance? What are the details of their exercise regimens, and why? What books have they given others as gifts the most often? What activities are the largest time wasters for newcomers in their field? What supplements do they regularly take?”
“I don’t think of myself as a job interviewer. I consider myself to be a researcher. I’m not interested in anything if I can’t test it in the messy world of daily life and reproduce the findings.”
“I have examined, investigated, and in some way applied everything in these pages to my own life. In high-stakes conversations, risky situations, or significant business dealings, I’ve employed dozens of these strategies. I’ve made millions of dollars and avoided years of frustration and pointless effort thanks to the lessons.”
“For myself, I wrote this book, which serves as my ultimate toolkit. My life has been altered by it, and I wish the same for you.”
Key ideas in this book:
- Extreme athletes provide some of the greatest health advice.
- There is no recipe for sustaining personal health.
- A difficult work will give you the perspective and motivation you need to succeed.
- Working with long-term systems, as opposed to short-term aims, leads to achievement.
- Ignoring peer pressure and taking significant risks are essential to achieving success.
- Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are comedic geniuses with unique formulas.
- Creativity demands living one’s life and accepting both fear and discomfort.
