Note: this is a summary and not the original book.
Tim Ferriss is an angel investor and advisor to various tech start-ups such as Facebook, Twitter, and Uber, among others. But perhaps he is most popular for his podcasts that feature guests from various disciplines, covering a wide array of topics from athletics to metaphysics. His podcast The Tim Ferriss Show has been downloaded over 80 million times, dubbing Tim "The Oprah of Audio."
Tools of Titans began as Tim's personal project to summarize more than 10,000 pages of his notes. The end-result is a compendium of tips and tidbits from experts, influencers, and people who are generally considered as success stories. These are people who, like Tim, are titans or super-humans, in the sense that they have accomplished great things in their respective fields, and are driving significant changes in the world in their own ways.
Contributing guests include athletic power couple Laird Hamilton and Gabby Reece, action star turned politician Arnold Schwarzenegger, philosopher Alain de Botton, journalist Malcolm Gladwell, and AcroYoga cofounder Jason Nemer, among others.
For Tim, Tools of Titans is not just a compilation of quotations, but a toolkit full of results-driven tactics and philosophies that worked for successful people and for him. Arnold Schwarzenegger said that he is not a self-made man because he has had a lot of help along the way by standing on the shoulders of giants. Tim made the shoulders of giants more accessible to listeners, and this summary makes it even more easy to digest.
