Tribe of Mentors

release date: Nov 21, 2017
Tribe of Mentors
Tim Ferriss, the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The 4-Hour Workweek, shares the ultimate choose-your-own-adventure book—a compilation of tools, tactics, and habits from 130+ of the world''s top performers. From iconic entrepreneurs to elite athletes, from artists to billionaire investors, their short profiles can help you answer life''s most challenging questions, achieve extraordinary results, and transform your life. From the author: In 2017, several of my close friends died in rapid succession. It was a very hard year, as it was for many people. It was also a stark reminder that time is our scarcest, non-renewable resource. With a renewed sense of urgency, I began asking myself many questions: Were my goals my own, or simply what I thought I should want? How much of life had I missed from underplanning or overplanning? How could I be kinder to myself? How could I better say “no” to the trivial many to better say “yes” to the critical few? How could I best reassess my priorities and my purpose in this world? To find answers, I reached out to the most impressive world-class performers in the world, ranging from wunderkinds in their 20s to icons in their 70s and 80s. No stone was left unturned. This book contains their answers—practical and tactical advice from mentors who have found solutions. Whether you want to 10x your results, get unstuck, or reinvent yourself, someone else has traveled a similar path and taken notes. This book, Tribe of Mentors, includes many of the people I grew up viewing as idols or demi-gods. Less than 10% have been on my podcast (The Tim Ferriss Show, more than 200 million downloads), making this a brand-new playbook of playbooks. No matter your challenge or opportunity, something in these pages can help. Among other things, you will learn: More than 50 morning routines—both for the early riser and those who struggle to get out of bed. How TED curator Chris Anderson realized that the best way to get things done is to let go. The best purchases of $100 or less (you''ll never have to think about the right gift again). How to overcome failure and bounce back towards success. Why Humans of New York creator Brandon Stanton believes that the best art will always be the riskiest. How to meditate and be more mindful (and not just for those that find it easy). Why tennis champion Maria Sharapova believe that “losing makes you think in ways victories can’t.” How to truly achieve work-life balance (and why most people tell you it isn’t realistic). How billionaire Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz transformed the way he engages with difficult situations to reduce suffering. Ways to thrive (and survive) the overwhelming amount of information you process every day. How to achieve clarity on your purpose and assess your priorities. And much more. This reference book, which I wrote for myself, has already changed my life. I certainly hope the same for you. I wish you luck as you forge your own path. All the best, Tim Ferriss

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The game-changing author of Tribe of Mentors teaches you how to reach your peak physical potential with minimum effort. “A practical crash course in how to reinvent yourself.”—Kevin Kelly, Wired Is it possible to reach your genetic potential in 6 months? Sleep 2 hours per day and perform better than on 8 hours? Lose more fat than a marathoner by bingeing? Indeed, and much more. The 4-Hour Body is the result of an obsessive quest, spanning more than a decade, to hack the human body using data science. It contains the collective wisdom of hundreds of elite athletes, dozens of MDs, and thousands of hours of jaw-dropping personal experimentation. From Olympic training centers to black-market laboratories, from Silicon Valley to South Africa, Tim Ferriss fixated on one life-changing question: For all things physical, what are the tiniest changes that produce the biggest results? Thousands of tests later, this book contains the answers for both men and women. It’s the wisdom Tim used to gain 34 pounds of muscle in 28 days, without steroids, and in four hours of total gym time. From the gym to the bedroom, it’s all here, and it all works. You will learn (in less than 30 minutes each): • How to lose those last 5-10 pounds (or 100+ pounds) with odd combinations of food and safe chemical cocktails • How to prevent fat gain while bingeing over the weekend or the holidays • How to sleep 2 hours per day and feel fully rested • How to produce 15-minute female orgasms • How to triple testosterone and double sperm count • How to go from running 5 kilometers to 50 kilometers in 12 weeks • How to reverse “permanent” injuries • How to pay for a beach vacation with one hospital visit And that''s just the tip of the iceberg. There are more than 50 topics covered, all with real-world experiments, many including more than 200 test subjects. You don''t need better genetics or more exercise. You need immediate results that compel you to continue. That’s exactly what The 4-Hour Body delivers.

The 4-Hour Workweek ... in 30 Minutes
How Children Succeed …in 30 minutes is the essential guide to quickly understanding the integral role character plays in determining a child’s success as outlined in Paul Tough’s best-selling book, How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character. In How Children Succeed, best-selling author Paul Tough examines the research of neuroscientists, medical doctors, psychologists, educators, and economists to discover the qualities that lead to successful children and, ultimately, successful adults. Exploring both ends of the socioeconomic spectrum, and the related stress and challenges that impede children’s ability to succeed, Tough posits while adverse childhood experiences can cause lasting impacts, there are interventions that have been proven to work in repairing those effects. An essential read for parents, social workers, educators, and politicians, Tough stresses the importance of noncognitive skills and concludes that developing a child’s character strengths—grit, self-control, zest, social intelligence, gratitude, optimism, and curiosity—is the most powerful tool in helping children reach for success.

The Mind's Sky

release date: Feb 15, 2011
The Mind's Sky
Timothy Ferris, bestselling author of Coming of Age in the Milky Way, brilliantly synthesizes inner and outer space with a penetrating examination into the nature of the universe and the human brain that perceives it. Through the lenses of two innovative fields of scientific research - neuroscience and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, or SETI - Ferris brings into focus a startling new vision of the relationship between mind and universe. Whether he is contemplating the possibility of otherwordly life-forms or pondering the consequences of virtual reality computer technology, Timothy Ferris captures our sense of wonder with a lucid and imaginative look at one of modern science''s greatest challenges; how we can understand, interpret and, ultimately, reconcile the equally mysterious realms of mind and universe. From ancient Stone Age burial mounds to today''s state-of-the-art laboratories, solving this eternal riddle has been the goal of philosophers and mystics, occultists and poets, alchemists and scientists. In The Mind''s Sky, Ferris examines the ''dance'' between mind and cosmos, showing how the universe is partly a construct of the mind itself and asking whether intelligence - far from being a product of our world alone - may have universal currency. Ferris considers the intriguing complexity of the human brain and what constitutes real intelligence. Laughter, near-death experiences, athletic performance (''Joe Montana''s Premotor Cortex''), the neurobiology of mystical experience, and a subtle mental program called ''the interpreter'' are all part of his freewheeling quest into the nature of consciousness. Ferris advances the provocative thesis that SETI, our current search for life on other planets, could reward the human race with the fruit of cosmic knowledge - or prove as cataclysmic as Eve''s desire for the apple. And he gives us an inside look at IT - information theory - a new philosophy of knowledge and communication. Filled with the combination of scientific fact, human anecdote, and provocative insight that has become his trademark, Timothy Ferris''s The Mind''s Sky offers a rare, life-enhancing perception of our world and our cosmos and underscores the unique choices we face as a species capable of deciding our own fate on the planet - and among the stars.
