“I leave it out on my floor and read a page or two whenever I pass it. It’s already filled with 100s of my notes. It’s maybe the one physical book I keep around. The rest, including my own books, I keep on my Kindle.”

How to read this book

The best thing I can say about Tim Ferriss is that he’s introduced me to an incredible group of people that have changed my life. These people are world class performers that look at their skills, the world, and their lives in deeply contemplative, humble, and surprising ways.

And that’s how you should read this book. Look at it as a phone book of introductions to Titans.

In each section, “Healthy”, “Wealthy”, and “Wise”, you’ll get questions to ask yourself and a path to head down. You won’t necessarily get the full plan, but you’ll get the questions and the direction to go.

Again, this is not a manual, but a phone book and a map. Use it accordingly to your advantage.

critical review

Some good tidbits, but mostly an homage to workaholism and perfectionism and other afflictions

I like the D’Agostino profile, the chapters on psychedelics, a few other profiles and tidbits, and some of Ferriss’ sleep hacks and routines. But it’s largely an homage to workaholism, perfectionism, hyper-ambition, aggressive careerism, wealth chasing, and incessant striving. Lot of n=1 advice being dispensed as a universal truth, just because the dispenser is “successful”. And not sure you want advice from people who stay up till 1 am looking at a computer, or go to the gym late at night, or compulsively start companies, or make exercise into some monstrous project. The breadth of info is a feature of the book, but also a detriment… it’s info overload and exhausting even thinking about trying to assimilate so much. What happened to living simply? It also seems to be a major vanity project for Ferriss. It is enjoyable to browse through, and I like the lists at the end, and the book feels good in the hand and is an appealing object.
