“Tools of Titans” is a compilation of tactics and advice from some of the most successful people in the world, all of whom have been interviewed by Ferriss on his podcast, The Tim Ferriss Show. The book is divided into three sections: Health, Wealth, and Wisdom, providing an array of insights across various aspects of life and work.

Key Takeaways:
The book doesn’t follow a strict narrative but is a collection of tips, including:

        • Methods to increase productivity and improve health.
        • Techniques for goal-setting and decision-making.
        • Approaches to developing resilience and managing stress.
        • Strategies for investing and creating wealth.


The book’s major strength lies in the diversity of its content and contributors. It offers a myriad of perspectives and advice, catering to a wide range of interests. The structure of the book allows readers to pick it up and read sections randomly, depending on what they’re interested in at the moment.

Due to its format, “Tools of Titans” may feel disjointed to some readers. The wide range of advice can also feel overwhelming or irrelevant, depending on the reader’s personal needs and interests.

  • “What might you do to accomplish your 10-year goals in the next 6 months if you had a gun against your head?”
  • “The question you should be asking isn’t, ‘What do I want?’ or ‘What are my goals?’ but ‘What would excite me?'”

Relevance to us:
The wealth of advice from successful entrepreneurs and thought leaders provides an invaluable resource for those starting or working on their own businesses. The wide range of topics ensures that readers will find advice applicable to their unique entrepreneurial journey.


“Tools of Titans” is recommended for anyone looking for practical and diverse advice on health, wealth, and wisdom. While its format might not appeal to everyone, those who appreciate a variety of perspectives will find it a valuable resource.  I personally grab it whenever I want ideas on how to improve some random facet of my life.  It’s helped with my diet, my sleep, and my recovery from workouts.
