    1. I m the kind of person who laps up inspirational books like this one I greatly enjoyed Tools of Titans, but I have to deduct a star because what kind of message does it send when out of the 114 people the author profiles for nuggets of greatness, insight, and wisdom, only 12 are women Yes, I counted.


    2. What an awful book With Tim there is this status quo that you must say wow on everything he does, because he is very enthusiastic and controversial, but to be honest its not the case here.I found out that people feel liberal and sophisticated and modern because they listen to Tim.This is why he is going to get best seller New York Times from sophisticated wannabes.Basically the book is like surfing the web and read about eclectic products with ads.The ads are cross promotions Tim does to his fri [...]


    3. American author, public speaker Timothy Ferriss has compiled a book perfect for the generation obsessed with famous people Apparently, the famous have some infinite wisdom quotes which will elevate the rest of us peasants to success First problem The foreward is done by Arnold Schwarzenegger Someone who cheats on his wife with a woman who works for the family and has a child with her is no role model for anyone At over 600 pages this hardcover book would be a useful tool to hit someone over the [...]


    4. Ugh Tim Ferriss First of all, you blew your credibility with me years ago in your debut Four Hour Work Week book when you touted someone who quit their job to open a great surf camp in Brazil and I knew this person and it was a huge failure and that person is now back at a desk job.So another one Tough to get through and then some life changing gem of a sentence pops up amongst the B.S so you keep pushing through the nonsense The health and work out advice up front from various experts is quite [...]


    5. In short Tim Ferris at his most stereotypical engaging, informative, and accessible Tools of Titans is extremely readable and really smart Ferris curiosity about other people s habits is contagious It s also the first book in a while that I couldn t put down and was personally helpful as someone on the cusp of college graduation to help vet some important decisions in my life I.E If a career personal decision isn t an automatic HELL YES , it s an automatic No If you re as another another reviewe [...]



    6. standard Tim many interesting things, many not so much If I learned one thing from this book it s that it is very easy to write a book.


    7. I just finished reading the book Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss In this 673 page compendium of successful individuals, Ferriss proposes two outcomes 1 Success, however you define it, is achievable if you collect the right field tested beliefs and habits and 2 the superheroes you have in your mind idols, icons, titans, billionaires, etc are nearly all walking flaws who ve maximized 1 or 2 strengths The book is organized around the themes of healthy, wealthy, and wise There are patterned questions [...]


    8. This is an EXCEPTIONAL book Part philosophy, part business, and part story, Ferriss distills some of the most important lessons he has learned through his own experiments with life and work, as well as from the dozens of successful people from all walks of life he has befriended or interviewed for his podcast and writings I have tried several times to read the book from the beginning, but have found it impossible because he will cover something that inspires me to jump to another part of the boo [...]


    9. I introduced myself to Tim Ferriss last year when I randomly found a post on his blog in which he had interviewed Maria Popova Actually, I was searching for Brain Picking s Maria Popova s interviews as she is such an inspiring blogging personality, the way she curate the content for every post is amazing and seems an example of a creative process, just right out of her imagination.You must check out Brain Pickings Moreover, scan through Tim Ferriss blog which is called FourHourWorkWeek and got i [...]


    10. 58%, Did not finish This isn t a book about the routines and personalities of celebrities, billionaires and world beaters, it s a book about Tim Ferriss.Tim is the kind of man who wants you to know that he is on the Self Actualisation level of Maslow s hierarchy of needs Having to endure the constant interjections, the claims of how successful the author is just wore me down until I gave up and switched to something a little less self centered.Perhaps Tim could fund his next start up venture in [...]


    11. Mediocre at best This is a collection of interviews from billionaires, athletes, and people in the top of their field I enjoyed reading some of the interviews, and learning stories of how people overcame failures is always inspiring.However, the premise of this book seems to be a formula Read this, and you will learn to be successful Even after reading a few interviews in this book, it s very clear that there is no one formula at all In fact, habits of one of the interviewees may have have a hig [...]


    12. 3,7 5 This book is a buffet you can choose from.The fact that it s 674 pages big and the way it s structured makes it so that it s a less nice read , however, that s also why he advises to skip pages liberally It gives you a lot of the hows but from what I ve read so far not a lot of why s, and this means that it lacks a bit of depth But that s not what the book was meant for, it just gives you the Tools of Titans Generally I liked his other books better but that s probably because I m so well t [...]


    13. A meta reading experience because, having read 150 200 books per year for the past few years and taking notes insights on all of them, this entire book looks like what my annual book logs look like Hence, I was highlighting all over the book 195 highlights apparently, since Kindle now integrates highlights into Tim Ferriss produced a book from his podcasts like I produce learnings and notes from the books I read, so this book was well suited to my style.


    14. Although this book had a certain lack of consistency in terms of quality of advice some things are just too self evident and not exactly earth shattering tidbits , I enjoyed the wide variety of subject matter explored by such an assorted group of high achievers This is a good read for when you need a snapshot jolt of common sense, humor, and a kick in the pants to go do something with your time Hope to eventually read other titles by Tim Ferriss.


    15. If I could give no stars I wouldA very overrated book and one I couldn t bear to keep reading I rarely stop a book if I started it but I only struggled through half of this one Literally just notes in typed form Format is inconsistent and scattered Definitely would NOT recommend.


    16. Valuable but lacks sttuctureIn Tools of Titans, Tim grabbed some of the best of his podcast and moved it into print But the content is missing real structure and is mixed with silly nonsense that is meant to be funny but misses the mark such as favorite spirit animals and his useless billboard question There are some golden nuggets in here and they are worth going after, I just had to work a little harder than I wanted It was worth the price especially after 200 free episodes of the podcast whic [...]


    17. I m not one for New Year s Resolutions If I want to fix something, I fix it, no matter the time of year But I do try to read something sort of self help esque for my first book of every year, even if it s frivolous, like regarding fashion or something along those lines I would not call this book frivolous, however I started listening to Tim Ferriss s podcasts in the past year, and haven t read his previous books, but decided to pick this one up He s a bit of a spastic weirdo in a good way but he [...]


    18. After listening all of the podcasts I found useful to read all the tips and tricks collected in this book A real manual on how to improve your life, from so many different voices that it s impossible not to fond something valuable.


    19. I like the use of a titan s guide Some of my favorites were Paulo Coelho and Malcolm Gladwell Would have like to see a few women referenced, but in the end, I am glad I stuck with this book.


    20. This is a great book to pick up if you re interested in observing general patterns that highly successful by most definitions people tend towards, and less great if you specifically want these patterns largely spelled out for you Different things work for different people, and this book is certainly no different some of these very successful people swear by some things and others specifically removed those things from their lives to positive affect The important thing, I think, is to look at the [...]



    21. Frustrating hodgepodge of bits bobs Wanted to give it two stars, but annoyingly I found a couple of actual useful ideas in there.


    22. This is a very zen book I read it for around six months and I never had a problem with coming back to it, as I always knew I d get something from it The something could be anything out of a list of things on top, advice with meditation, sports or attitude, or work, life or relationship lessons Or, very intriguing stories about psychedelics, failure or suicide prevention In any case, I d recommend reading this to anybody and to pick out the lessons that resonate for you, as it is likely to make y [...]


    23. Big fan of Tim s stuff for a while now Was really really looking forward to this book, and although I m VERY happy with the purchase if you enjoyed the podcasts, you ll love the book fact , I m also slightly disappointed and feel a bit cheated for two reasons 1 The book is organised by interviewees, not by subjects although from some of his promo materials I understood that it would be structured by topics 2 There is really not that much of new content I ve listened to the vast majority of the e [...]


    24. It s not really a book, as in a cohesive body of work It s really just a summary of Mr Ferriss s podcasts with guests offering advice on a variety of topics At times it just reads like an advertisement for various products, etc.A lot of the information is interesting, some is naturally contradictory, and very little will be applicable to any reader.The most memorable aspect of the book for me personally was the introduction in which Mr Ferriss talks about how he was working on the book in a cafe [...]


    25. I have mentioned a few times on Medium about how Tim has changed my life, like many others already set to go down as probably the best interviewer since the start of the podcast age, Tim has created a tome to unlock the potential greatness in each of us This is not a read and shelf book, but a volume that you will come back to for years to come as you engage with becoming the best version of yourself possible The best evidence of the wisdom in the book is experiencing the near real time transfor [...]


    26. Trust Tim s guidance in the intro of the book reading this one linearly might not be the best way Despite the attempts to bring structure, this still is rather an eclectic collection of notes from his podcast series, pickled with a few personal stories.I took copious notes for the books, movies and music his guest s have recommended but then again, could have gotten those from the indexes in the end I m also sure I ll go and listen to a few full podcast episodesSo that s what the book really is, [...]


    27. I finally finished this huge book of interviews and articles and recommend it highly I certainly would not follow all of the advice I found there, especially some of the parts on diet, meds, and exercise, but the parts dealing with energy, creativity, and productivity were of great interest So many successful people many points of view And now I hear Tim Ferriss is going to have a TV show on Audience called Fear less I think it will be worth checking out.
