    1. Paige Gordon on said:

      This book was a weird experience for me Although I think the idea behind it is brilliant and it was very well executed and put together, my main feeling after reading it is honestly a little bit of sadness And my main takeaway from it was surprisingly I should read my Bible That seems like an unusual takeaway from a book that featured as far as I could tell exactly zero advice from any strong Christian person However what struck me most from reading all of the advice in this book was one simple [...]

      Tim Ferriss did an excellent job asking the interviewees good questions The one that I liked the most is what changed their life most in the last five years Taking only answers to this one question, I discovered plenty of new ideas for how to improve my life.My three favorites are Engage in your fear practice for two minutes each day Take the Enneagram test to better understand who you are Start to believe that we are all mini gods.I found a total of 21 great habit ideas that improved life the m [...]

      The last book i ve finished this year was Tribe of Mentors The first one Tools of titans In the meantime Tim become Timothy and i ve read 58 other books Theese two were definitly among the best this year Tim is asking 140 people that are the best in their fields billionaires, athletes, writers, poker players, bitcoin and blockchain experts and everyone in between 11 the same questions Read questions on his blog Understand how powerfull the answers might be Buy the book Read the motherfucker Make [...]

    4. Aman Mittal on said:

      I get excited when I hear Tim Ferriss is going to release a new book The guy knows what to write, or at least how to present information in terms of mere words Last year, I spent 18 days on his Tools of Titans which came out in the month of December I haven t spent than 15 days on Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace and War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy Tim s books tend to cover a vast amount of information that is not easy for a human brain to process After putting my nose in his other books such [...]

    5. Sambasivan on said:

      Tim Ferriss excels in these types of books where there is a synthesis of lifetime learnings encapsulated through answers to 11 questions The responses are from successful people across all the walks of life and these people have conquered their fears and failures to become what they are A good refresher course for the motivated lot and a transformational read for the others who can dip into these learnings strewn across the pages Worth a breezy read.

    6. Stealth Journals on said:

      One of my biggest takeaways from this book was finding out how many successful people include these three things within their daily schedules meditation, journaling or keeping lists, and walking Part of the inspiration that Tim shares of the why how this book came to be born was from one of his own morning journaling sessions where he wrote What would this look like if it were easy Blurbs I Collected in my Reading Journal Specifically About Journaling Keeping Lists Richa Chadha journals for clar [...]

    7. Pam Boling on said:

      I couldn t even finish this book When I read a title Tribe of Mentors with rave reviews this book has, I expect a lot than this book offers The questions are presented to the mentors in such a way that the advice they offer is very superficial Everyone who had something to contribute to this collection has vast and varied life experiences They have incredible talent, expertise, and advice they could have shared Instead, they are inhibited by the constraints of Mr Ferriss s questions, so the aud [...]

    8. Erik Rostad on said:

      Tim Ferriss asks a set of the same 11 questions to some of the top performers in the world, and this book is a collection of answers from 131 of these people As in Tools of Titans, my favorite part of the book was reading the book recommendations from these people Since my 2018 reading list is set, I now have a good number of books to add to my 2019 list.It s fun reading books like this because you start to see patterns One pattern from a number of mentors was the advice to focus on now Plans ar [...]

    9. Annie on said:

      A lot of interesting quotes and info from people famous in their respective fields The diversity in the answers was fascinating.Great inputs esp to budding entrepreneurs.Most common advice when you are feeling overwhelmed or unfocused Meditation, Going on a walk, Exercise, Try to get to the root of the feeling and then tackle it when you feel ready.If I am able to make use of some of these inputs, I ll come back and update.

    10. Mithun on said:

      I wasted my time trying to read this book It s apparent that the author has zero time invested in trying to make it better in any meaningful way with focus Never felt the connection with the topic at hand other than for Susan Cain s section and the transition between mentors is terrible It s like the author had some fake reasoning for himself to justify his narration, and a bunch of quotes, but the results are very poor These very well could have been individual blogposts over a period of time, [...]

    11. Jeremey Duvall on said:

      Some of the interviews left a bit to be desired, but others Dr Peter Attia, Whitney Cummings, and Tim O Reilly to name a few are well worth the price of admission I ended up with dozens of highlights and new books to read.

    12. sprinkle.your.sparkle on said:

      A meta reading experience The I read, the books and food for thought I come up with to add to my ideas list I ve been slacking lately on Tim s podcast so before I even opened the book, I made a little experiment I forced myself to come up with a list of five questions I would ask if I reached such a collection of mentors I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that Tim had included 4 out of 5 of those questions YES That s what I call a WIN It is quite disappointing though as you can imagi [...]

    13. Daniel on said:

      Since this is a Tim Ferriss book, I ll give my review based on his Five Bullet Friday blog Posted this on a Sunday though Five bullets for Tim s newest book 1 Short and sweet interviews were packed with ready to implement tactics for self improvement 2 Questions are specifically geared towards how each individual finds their own self purpose in terms of adding value to the world Ferriss has a general question list but does deviate depending on the guest 3 Feels like Tools of Titans 2.0 except wi [...]

    14. Justin on said:

      I am a fairly big fan of Tim s He pushes the limits and as such I don t always like his products.I think the idea behind this book is a good one Tim has a bunch of good questions he asks brilliant people The problem I had with this book is one of organization it s in a Q A format I didn t find most of the people or questions to be interesting enough to read I did like the best 100 or less purchase but Tim emailed that one s answers already I think if Tim summarized the results based on topics, I [...]

    15. Luke Lawrence on said:

      This book obviously begs to be compared with Tools of Titans, so I will Tim has put together the meditative spiritual companion to Titans In some ways it is better, but as a sit down read it can get tiring Titans was a sporadic mix of questions, essays, and tidbits This book is intentionally structured The same few questions are asked to the dozens of contributors and as you move through you pick up the patterns and differences On one hand you dive deep into a topic until you could write an essa [...]

    16. Bing Gordon on said:

      The most interesting aspect of the book is that Ferriss reached such a diverse group, and that he developed a short set of go to questions But I get the sense he sent emails and just handed the responses to some anonymous editor to transcribe If you must indulge in this book, read the introduction thru page xx Then put it away, order Charlie Munger s book and go for a walk.

    17. Sean Liu on said:

      Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise, instead, seek what they sought MATSUO BASH Changed this from 4 to 5 stars because there s just so much good stuff in here It s easy to gloss over it because the advice is almost too accessible I m used to working hard to extract the golden nuggets , but after going through my notes, it really is packed with some of the best advice I ve come across I love that each chapter is only a few pages so you can flip through and choose the profiles that [...]

    18. Jeff Kruman on said:

      Big fan of Tim Ferriss books and podcast As he writes in the introduction, this is supposed to be a choose your own adventure book Many of the profiles I liked, some did not resonate, and a handful really struck a chord for me I read the book cover to cover Some may prefer picking and choosing which profiles to dive into, but after reading a few that I considered skipping and finding some gems, I did not want to risk missing anything.Ferriss asks the same 11 questions to each of his mentors and [...]

    19. John Crippen on said:

      My friend Jimmi and I heard Tim Ferriss late last fall while he was on book tour His live interviews that evening of Steve Case and M Sanjayan were great Tribe of Mentors Short Life Advice from the Best in the World was interesting to scan, but it mainly tasked me with a list of full length interviews to listen to, other books to read, and things to buy Many of the mentors were folks whose advice I would neither normally seek nor value That said, he did have great responses from some heavy hitte [...]

    20. Dominic Carlin on said:

      Bless me Umi for my sins I always feel a slight twinge of guilt when reading a Tim Ferriss book This should be a dirty little secret that nobody knows about He s kind of an arse he s definitely an arse but I kind of like dickheads like him Incredibly, by taking outsourcing to another level and leaving all the words to others , he s actually produced his most readable and interesting book I mean that in the nicest possible way, Timothy, obviously you ve always been a half decent interviewer I lea [...]

    21. Jiu on said:

      While I doubt anyone would deny that this book contains lots valuable tips, its set up is extremely lazy It s a collection of quotes, email exchanges and repetitions of the same questions over and over again some of which aren t very interesting Unlike Tools of Titans, I didn t enjoy reading this book.I generally like Tim s podcast and books but I feel like ToM is kind of missing the point and mainly a means of making some quick money.

    22. Charles on said:

      Thanks for a greatly organized and tailored source of best practices mister Ferriss.This book is not a list of short cuts to get you from A to B, it s rather a list of best practices and funny practices to tailor your own personal engine and have the best journey you want to make happen.

    23. Andrea Judy on said:

      For the most part I don t like Tim Ferriss books I ve tried to get into the 4 hour series and have never gotten them to click with me However, this book features almost exclusively interviews with other people talking about the things that have influenced the, It gives a nice range of ideas, strategies and some just plain fun stories.

    24. Josh Koskinen on said:

      Really great book Enjoyed reading the answers of many industry leaders to Tim s 11 Questions and even had a retreat day with my staff and we all answered the 11 Questions for ourselves I would love if Tim wrote a book on asking good questions and tips from how he created his podcast.

    25. Mugren Ohaly on said:

      There might be some good advice or good recommendations in here, but it s all extremely repetitive.

    26. Eric on said:

      This book was terrible I want my 30.00 back and my time This was purely a money grab by Ferriss Awful.

    27. Tamas Ionut on said:

      Relatively low information content from my point of view this book could be reduced to about 200 pages of useful content.

    28. Adrian Bezler on said:

      Read the entire book in one session Tim s early works had quite an impact on me, but was rather disappointed by Teibe of Mentors This doesnt mean that i wouldnt recommend it, but as a frequent listener to his podcast it was rather limited what i took away from the book.

    29. Blake Murphy on said:

      A timeless resource I ve read all of Tim Ferriss s books and this is a great addition to the collection It s not exactly a book you read cover to cover, I think it s best if you leave it out and pick it up from time to time a good bathroom book and read a few pages a time I have started to highlight various ideas and comments I liked and will be referencing it often.
