Tools of Titans, Tim Ferriss

“Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers”, Tim Ferriss
736 pages – Paperback | eBook

This summary is part of an ongoing project to read, note and summarise ~70 books on Learning How to Learn - for more, see the full reading list.

TYPE: Non-fiction (reference), practical.

SYNOPSIS: A curated collection of interview notes on health, wealth and wisdom from over 100 conversations with top performers and curious characters – by author, podcaster and life-hacker Tim Ferriss.

NOTE: Question: How do you summarise 101 interview notes* set out over 736 pages in just 3 hours? Answer: You don’t. And I didn’t.

Instead, I spent my time with Tools of Titans creating a full list of every book recommended inside (including Tim’s preface, the actual contents and the appendix of “Most-Gifted and Recommended Books of All Guests”).

And, spoiler alert, it’s one helluva list (and a source I’ll be drawing on for my own reading for the foreseeable future – especially the fiction section). 

In the future, I may group things more thematically. For now, here are all 452 titles, split by religious texts (5), fiction (98) and non-fiction (349), then organised by a combination of rating score and number of ratings received on Goodreads.

(If you arrived here from the Learning How to Learn reading list, I’m sorry. As if you weren’t overwhelmed with reading options already!)

Will I come back for a full crunch? Unlikely. Crunching Tools of Titans would be as counterproductive as trying to crunch a random selection of Wikipedia articles. Instead, I’ll be picking it up now and again to read a few interviews at a time or using this index to selectively browse its wisdom on a topic by topic basis.

Anyhow, as always, I’ll be linking to any summaries I write on the books below as they’re published. If you’re not already subscribed, click here to get those direct to your inbox as they come out.

But for now, without further ado – here’s the list!

* Including: 7 actors, 9 athletes, 2 cartoonists, 4 chefs, 4 coaches, 5 comedians, 6 doctors, 16 entrepreneurs, 5 filmmakers, 7 investors, 3 soldiers, 5 musicians, 3 philosophers, 2 podcasters, 2 professors, 3 scientists and 18 writers (I know, I know, it adds up to 102. Blame the omissions and duplicates in Tim’s index!).
