Essential Reads – Tools of Titans
Since launching his podcast, The Tim Ferriss Show, Timothy Ferriss has had the opportunity of interviewing over 200 people. They're not ordinary people, though. These guests are legendary in their own right and each episode is dedicated to the tips, tools and tactics these titans have used to reach where they are.
However, most of us don't have time to listen to over 600 hours of recording. This is where Tools of Titans comes in. The book is a distilled version of all the inside secrets and golden nuggets shared by the legends in those shows. These legends even include celebrities like Jamie Foxx, Arnold Schwarzenegger, etc.
“Losers have goals. Winners have systems.”
Ferriss could have easily left the book as it is. However, he takes it one level higher by testing out those tips, tools and tactics by himself. Yes, you read that correctly. Every piece of advice in those pages has been tried and tested by him in dozens of high stakes negotiations, high risk environments and large business deals. Basically, it is his opinion that if he's unable to replicate the results that his guests got from applying those techniques, it is not worth his time.
Originally intended as a concise guide on high-leverage tools for his own use, you'll be glad that Ferriss decided to share this with us all. He claims it has changed his life. Only one question remains - Will it change yours? You'll have to read it to find out.
