Top critical review
from some of the best people in the world
Reviewed in the United States on November 24, 2017
I am huge fan of Tim. This was the most dissapointing book I have read by him.
I'm writing this as constructive feedback. Tim wrote this as an instruction manual. You are supposed to find an actionable nugget on every page, from some of the best people in the world.
But I feel cheated of value. He basically sent out an email to hundreds of successful people, asking them the same questions. Reading this is the equivilant of reading hundreds of emails. As hurried as the responses are, you are trying to read it even more hurriedly. The one thing there is of value, is that Tim has sorted out what he feels is important. But unlike his "Tools of Titan" (which is one of the most valuable books you can have in your bookshelf), the informations is shallow. There is too much knowledge, shallow and without context, which makes most of these pages useless.
I like the Tools of Titans format, since it is more of Tim's distillied notes and higlights. It is obvious he spent a lot more time on it, than this one.
I would LOVE more books from Tim. But the format should be different. Knowledge needs to be organized more effectively to have any value. There should be a way to go deeper also, and not just swim on the surface on a ton of ideas. It's probably not possible to do psychoterapy on each individual, but please, Tim. More depth than breadth.
I hope this was insightful in any way. It was my first review, because I want Tim to get feedback if it can help him in any way.
