Reading List: Tools of Titans

At 673 pages, this book looks and feels like a bible. With interviews and tips from 112 people—including leaders, entrepreneurs, doctors, actors, comedians and more—Tools of Titans could very well be considered a holy book on personal growth. The author and host of his eponymous podcast, Tim Ferriss calls it a “compendium of recipes for high performance.” The book is organized into three parts: Healthy, with insights from likes of former U.S. National Team gymnastics coach Christopher Sommer; Wealthy, with advice from Daymond John, Tony Robbins, Peter Diamandis and others; and Wise, with ideas from several thought leaders including Brené Brown, Paulo Coelho, Malcolm Gladwell and even Seth Rogen.

Ferriss stands by every single word of advice in his book because he’s personally tried them all. “If I can’t test something or replicate results… I’m not interested,” Ferriss writes. He adds by using tactics from the book in “high-stakes negotiations, high-risk environments, or large business dealings,” he’s made millions of dollars and saved countless hours of wasted efforts.
