About the Timothy Ferriss Interview

Hey reddit, Tim Ferriss here.

I’m best known for my books including “The 4-Hour Workweek”, “The 4-Hour Body”, “The 4-Hour Chef”, “Tools of Titans”, and Tribe of Mentors,” which was released yesterday!

I am also the host of “The Tim Ferriss Show.” The podcast has been downloaded over 200,000,000 times and I’ve been fortunate enough to interview people including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Foxx, Edward Norton, Tony Robbins, Maria Popova, Peter Thiel, Marc Andreessen, Amanda Palmer, and a ton more.

My newest book is “Tribe of Mentors.” The book is the result of sending the same 11 questions to some of the most successful, wildly varied, and well-known people on the planet. People like Jimmy Fallon, Rick Rubin, Maria Sharapova, Ben Stiller, Greg Norman, Brené Brown, Dara Torres, and many more.

I asked the questions to seek guidance in my own life. I turned 40 this year, celebrated The 4-Hour Workweek’s 10th anniversary, and gave a vulnerable Ted Talk. As often happens at forks in the path—college graduation, quarter-life crisis, midlife crisis, kids leaving home, retirement—questions started to bubble to the surface. This book answers those questions from some of the world's most famous entrepreneurs, athletes, investors, poker players, and artists. The tips and strategies in have already changed my life, and I hope the same for you. If you’d like, you can read the introduction here.

Outside of podcasting and books I’m also an angel investor and startup advisor in companies such as Uber, Duolingo, Facebook, Twitter, Alibaba, and 50 more (Most are here: http://angel.co/tim).
