The bestselling 4-Hour Work Week author turns to other high-profile experts to uncover the secrets of failure and success.
Entrepreneur Tim Ferriss joined the Self-Help A-list in 2007 with the publication of his bestselling The 4-Hour Work Week. In that book, Ferris promised to show CEOs and employees alike how they could reduce the time spent working while increasing their wealth. He’s since followed up with four more books and a podcast, The Tim Ferriss Show. He claims the podcast, in which he interviews people at the top of their respective fields, has been downloaded more than 400 million times.
Ferris published Tribe of Mentors exactly a decade after his breakthrough bestseller — and while he was in the midst of a tough year. He’d turned 40 and found himself pondering his goals and place in the world. His search for answers led to this book, in which he seeks advice from dozens of highly successful athletes, actors, comedians, chefs, hedge fund managers, entrepreneurs, and more.
He sent each person the same set of 11 questions — and in some cases a few more tailored ones — including, “How has a failure, or apparent failure, set you up for later success?” and “In the last five years, what new belief, behavior, or habit has most improved your life?” The book mixes a selection of their answers with other things Ferriss finds inspiring.
