After three #1 bestsellers, I finally pulled the trigger.
Starting in 2013, I began quietly buying rights to books that have changed my life. Why?
- Since college, I’ve fantasized about somehow driving under-appreciated books into the limelight.
- I was greatly influenced by books recommended by Oprah Winfrey’s Book Club (e.g. Love in the Time of Cholera), despite the fact that I wasn’t her demographic.
- This blog’s community (~1.5M uniques/month) is incredible, and we REALLY like books (see comparison to TV and NYT Op-Ed impact). The idea of having tens of thousands of people read the same book each month, all interacting with one another and the author, is thrilling to me.
So, cutting to the chase — below are the books from The Tim Ferriss Book Club, with more to come. They are listed in chronological order, not magnitude of impact.
I hope you enjoy them all as much as I have!
#6 - Lazy: A Manifesto
