Book Review – Tools Of Titans

by Tim Ferriss (Vermilion) ISBN: 9781785041273

Tools of Titans highlights the tactics, routines, and habits of billionaires, icons, and world-class performers.

Tim Ferriss, a New York Times bestselling author and host of the podcast The Tim Ferriss Show, spent two years collecting the secrets of super achievers – like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tony Robbins, Seth Godin, Paulo Coelho, Jon Favreau, Jamie Fox, and Malcolm Gladwell – and distilled them into this hefty book.

The book is divided into three broad sections – Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise – with many sub-chapters, even one for writers and one titled ‘Some Practical Thoughts on Suicide’ – where Ferriss shares his own thoughts on his darkest hour and how he overcame it.

It’s a big book, filled with advice and insight, and the author describes it as a ‘buffet’ – for you to dip into when you need it. He also describes it as ‘the notebook to end all notebooks’. It will help you, whether you’re an entrepreneur or an author, an MBA grad or just someone who wants to live a healthier and wealthier life. This book has some of the wisdom.
