BOOK REVIEW: Tribe of Mentors – Short Life Advice from the Best in the World by Timothy Ferriss

Tribe of Mentors by Tim Ferriss
Genres: Nonfiction, Business, Entrepreneurship
four-stars

Pages: 624, Kindle Edition

Published: 21st November 2017, by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Cover Rating: 5/5 (hint: something is in symmetry, see carefully)

I get excited when I hear Tim Ferriss is going to release a new book. The guy knows what to write, or at least how to present information in terms of mere words. Last year, I spent 18 days on his Tools of Titans which came out in the month of December. I haven’t spent more than 15 days on Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace and War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. Tim’s books tend to cover a vast amount of information that is not easy for a human brain to process. After putting my nose in his other books such as The 4 Hour Work Week and The 4 Hour Body earlier this year, I had a plan.

BOOK REVIEW: Mastery by Robert Greene 

Mastery by Robert Greene
Genres: Nonfiction, Business, Entrepreneurship
five-stars

For a start, I want you to watch this video:

No, I did not watch this video before reading Mastery by Robert Greene book. Though I do watched it after reading the book and it made me read the book again and get deep into it. Malkhaz has elegantly and importantly described the whole 310 pages long book in almost 13 minutes and if you are not going to read this post, at least watch the video. You’ll definitely learn something new. If you decide to read this post, keep in my mind that I’m only writing about this book is because I enjoyed reading it and simply want to share my thoughts on it.

I was first introduced to Robert Greene’s works in 48 Laws of Power when I saw that red binding, vertical blue stripe in the middle of the cover in a local bookstore. I had a series of thoughts in parallel and some of them were extreme and exciting. After reading a few pages, he become my company for the next few days, especially morning and night. Not many books do I enjoy reading in the morning, but I can say Robert Greene’s writing is definitely the one to be enjoyed in the morning bliss. Wake up, get yourself together and Greene’s words will help to get hold of yourself for the rest of the day.
