General FAQAre you affiliated with Tim Ferriss or the publisher?
No. We are not connected with Tim or the publisher. Just a really big fan of his and this book!
All rights reserved for 'Tools of Titans: The tactics, routines, and habits of billionaires, icons, and world-class performers' to Timothy Ferris (author) and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company (publisher).
What exactly is included in this guide?
Throughout Tools of Titans within the chapters about each individual, aka 'Titan', many brand names, products, books, tools, gadgets, supplements, etc. are mentioned. This is a collection of almost every specific 'Tool' stated throughout the book, who recommended/mentioned the tool, and the page location. I have extracted over 1,000+ tools that within this book. There are many times where Tim mentions to 'Google' a name or phrase. Well in this guide I've already done that for you and also collected all the Titan's social media links for you to follow :)
What 'Tools' are not included?
- Many of the Titan's are authors and only the books mentioned in their introduction's are listed in the guide. For example, Seth Godin has written over 20+ books. Only the few books as mentioned in his intro are listed.
- Throughout the 'Healthy' section, many exercises are mentioned. These specific exercises and pictures are not included but can be upon request.
- At the end of the book are the chapters "The Most-Gifted and Recommended Books by ALL Guests" and "Favorite Films and TV Shows". These two chapters contain over 400+ recommendations of books, films, and TV shows of ALL the guests Tim has had. Most of these guests have dedicated chapters, but some of these guests do not. These items are not included on the Tools page, but you can find them all here on Tim's Blog.
There are tools that are actually quoted by Tim Ferriss but in this guide are recommended from the Titan. How come?
Throughout the book, Tim gives his own thoughts and extended quotes (labeled by 'TF:') on what the Titan said. Within these sections, Tim often recommends specific tools he uses related to what was said. Even though the specific Titan did not mention/recommend that tool, since Tim is stating this tool is relatable to with the Titan states, I included that the tool is recommended by the Titan.
Is every Titan listed in the tool guide?
Not every Titan / chapter mentions a specific tool they use or recommend. Every chapter does provide many words of wisdom by each of these Titans, and they are still listed on the Titan page.
How did you choose the specific products?
If the specific brand name of a tool was mentioned that item is included. For any generic items, the #1 top result / best-selling item was included.
