    Hello Everyone,

    It's been a while since I've participated within the community, and I do miss it!

    The question that I shall propose today is, "What's Your Favorite IM Based Book?"

    For instance, my favorite ones that I've come across are:
    "Dotcom Secrets" by Russell Brunson, and "Launch" by Jeff Walker.

    I'm curious to find out about the books that you feel have most strongly benefited your IM career, that also teach the techniques, ideologies, and methodologies of IM.

    Kind Regards! :)

    Four Hour Workweek + Tools of Titans + a little bit of common sense and a lot of reading with a touch of skepticism. All you need.

    That green isn't very white theme friendly.

    Anyway, I only use books to even a table, I only checkout video courses and eBooks,no one famous though.

    Googled the first one and saw it is even in my language available but being it from 2011, is it still relative? Also it might have been a best seller in NY, pretty much no1 bought it in my country.

    It definitely is. Read it last year and it's indeed great. Thought about reading tools of titans too but never did. Maybe I'll this year.

    I can definitely say that 4HWW is one of the main reasons why I've been able to take a business to six figures a year with less than 20 hours of work per week, and juggle a full time demanding job, several other personal projects, marriage, and hobbies.

    Tools of Titans is basically a condensed and annotated anthology of all of his podcasts. So hundreds and hundreds of hours of interviews and tips and tricks from top-notch performers, in a searchable format. I'd pop up a PDF version, but it's well worth the expense. It's 800+ pages.

    A lot of people give Tim Ferriss shit and lump him in with "gurus", but his experimentation and out-there way of thinking is far removed from the shit that being a guru entails.

    That's great man!

    Wish I could get inspired of some book but due to my past, I don't get inspired fast and certainly not through a book book as I'm having a high IQ but am ADD and absolutely hate reading so short attention span, I could just not imagine a book being that powerful but reading your testament maybe I should push myself to get through it.

    It's been more than a year since I read it, should maybe re-read it.

    I once took a look into tools of titans and didn't find it that interesting but maybe I'll look back into it. Did you listen to his podcasts and stuff and can recommend anything of that?
