As a successful entrepreneur and respected bestselling author, Tim Ferris is a titan in his own right. He has also interviewed more than 200 world-class performers for his podcast, The Tim Ferriss Show. This immense repository of experience and tried-and-tested approaches to life was his inspiration for his book Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers.
The Time Ferris Show
His 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. It didn’t take Tim long to realize he was sitting on a gold mine of information everyone could benefit from. By harnessing each of his guest’s best tools and tactics, Tim put together a summary of each interview explaining how they achieved greatness. For example, what they do in the first sixty minutes of each morning, their workout routines, the books have they gifted most to other people, what are the biggest wastes of time for novices in their field, what supplements they take– and the list goes on.
Tim the Experimenter
Tim’s approach to compiling the book is that of experimentation, if he can’t test something and replicate results in the messy reality of everyday life, he is not interested. This means Tim has personally vetted, explored and applied these tools to his own life in some fashion. He has used dozens of the tactics and philosophies in high-stakes negotiations, high-risk environments, or large business dealings. The lessons have made him millions of dollars and saved him years of wasted effort and frustration.
The Ultimate Notebook of High-Leverage Tools
Tim helps us to explore new ways to live using the tools of titans (tried and tested tools). You can search by subject and find the answers to subjects that you want to know more about.. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve any aspect in their life. From achieving fitness goals to handling work challenges, the tools you need can be found between the covers of Tim’s book.
