<DIV><B>Tim Ferriss, the #1 <I>New York Times</I> best-selling author of <I>The 4-Hour Workweek</I>, shares the ultimate choose-your-own-adventure book—a compilation of tools, tactics, and habits from 130+ of the world's top performers. From iconic entrepreneurs to elite athletes, from artists to billionaire investors, their short profiles can help you answer life's most challenging questions, achieve extraordinary results, and transform your life.</B><BR /><BR /><B>From the author:</B><BR /><BR /> In 2017, several of my close friends died in rapid succession. It was a very hard year, as it was for many people.<BR /><BR /> It was also a stark reminder that time is our scarcest, non-renewable resource.<BR /><BR /> With a renewed sense of urgency, I began asking myself many questions:<BR /><BR /> Were my goals my own, or simply what I thought I should want?<BR /> How much of life had I missed from underplanning or overplanning?<BR /> How could I be kinder to myself?<BR /> How could I better say “no” to the trivial many to better say “yes” to the critical few?<BR /> How could I best reassess my priorities and my purpose in this world?<BR /><BR /> To find answers, I reached out to the most impressive world-class performers in the world, ranging from wunderkinds in their 20s to icons in their 70s and 80s. No stone was left unturned.<BR /><BR /> This book contains their answers—practical and tactical advice from mentors who have found solutions. Whether you want to 10x your results, get unstuck, or reinvent yourself, someone else has traveled a similar path and taken notes.<BR /><BR /> This book, <I>Tribe of Mentors</I>, includes many of the people I grew up viewing as idols or demi-gods. Less than 10% have been on my podcast (<I>The Tim Ferriss Show</I>, more than 200 million downloads), making this a brand-new playbook of playbooks.<BR /><BR /> No matter your challenge or opportunity, something in these pages can help.<BR /><BR /> Among other things, you will learn:<BR /><BR /> • More than 50 morning routines—both for the early riser and those who struggle to get out of bed.<BR /> • How TED curator Chris Anderson realized that the best way to get things done is to let go.<BR /> • The best purchases of $100 or less (you'll never have to think about the right gift again).<BR /> • How to overcome failure and bounce back towards success.<BR /> • Why Humans of New York creator Brandon Stanton believes that the best art will always be the riskiest.<BR /> • How to meditate and be more mindful (and not just for those that find it easy).<BR /> • Why tennis champion Maria Sharapova believe that “losing makes you think in ways victories can’t.”<BR /> • How to truly achieve work-life balance (and why most people tell you it isn’t realistic).<BR /> • How billionaire Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz transformed the way he engages with difficult situations to reduce suffering.<BR /> • Ways to thrive (and survive) the overwhelming amount of information you process every day.<BR /> • How to achieve clarity on your purpose and assess your priorities.<BR /> • And much more.<BR /><BR /> This reference book, which I wrote for myself, has already changed my life. I certainly hope the same for you.<BR /><BR /> I wish you luck as you forge your own path.<BR /><BR /> All the best,<BR /><BR /> Tim Ferriss</DIV>

<b>#1 <i>New York Times </i>Bestseller</b><BR> <BR><b>“Significant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving.” —<i>The New York Times</i></b><BR> <BR><b>Ray Dalio, one of the world’s most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he’s developed, refined, and used over the past forty years to create unique results in both life and business—and which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals.</b><BR><BR>In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to <i>Fortune</i> magazine. Dalio himself has been named to <i>Time </i>magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater’s exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as “an idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.” It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio—who grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood—that he believes are the reason behind his success.<BR> <BR>In <i>Principles, </i>Dalio shares what he’s learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book’s hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of “radical truth” and “radical transparency,” include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating “baseball cards” for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses, and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, <i>Principles</i> also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision-making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they’re seeking to achieve.<BR> <BR>Here, from a man who has been called both “the Steve Jobs of investing” and “the philosopher king of the financial universe” (<i>CIO </i>magazine), is a rare opportunity to gain proven advice unlike anything you’ll find in the conventional business press.

<p><b>An updated edition of the blockbuster bestselling leadership book that took America and the world by storm, two U.S. Navy SEAL officers who led the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraq War demonstrate how to apply powerful leadership principles from the battlefield to business and life.</b></p><p>Sent to the most violent battlefield in Iraq, Jocko Willink and Leif Babin’s SEAL task unit faced a seemingly impossible mission: help U.S. forces secure Ramadi, a city deemed “all but lost.” In gripping firsthand accounts of heroism, tragic loss, and hard-won victories in SEAL Team Three’s Task Unit Bruiser, they learned that leadership—at every level—is the most important factor in whether a team succeeds or fails. </p><p>Willink and Babin returned home from deployment and instituted SEAL leadership training that helped forge the next generation of SEAL leaders. After departing the SEAL Teams, they launched Echelon Front, a company that teaches these same leadership principles to businesses and organizations. From promising startups to Fortune 500 companies, Babin and Willink have helped scores of clients across a broad range of industries build their own high-performance teams and dominate their battlefields.</p><p>Now, detailing the mind-set and principles that enable SEAL units to accomplish the most difficult missions in combat, <i>Extreme Ownership</i> shows how to apply them to any team, family or organization. Each chapter focuses on a specific topic such as Cover and Move, Decentralized Command, and Leading Up the Chain, explaining what they are, why they are important, and how to implement them in any leadership environment.</p><p>A compelling narrative with powerful instruction and direct application, <i>Extreme Ownership</i> revolutionizes business management and challenges leaders everywhere to fulfill their ultimate purpose: lead and win.</p>

<i>Work Less, Make More</i> is a dense delivery of solid systems and sane advice. It's not 80/20, it's 80/20 squared. Every few pages, James punches you in the face with an instantly actionable hack.<br /><i><b>~ Perry Marshall, Author of 80/20 Sales & Marketing, Ultimate Guide to Google AdWords, and Evolution 2.0</b></i><br /><br />In <i>Work Less, Make More</i>, James proves that keeping your business strategy simple produces far greater success (and happiness) than if you focus only on 'hustling'.<br /><i><b>~ John Reese</b></i><br /><br />James possesses a 'no-holds barred' approach to business which frees him to think outside ingrained assumptions regarding one's current realities and future opportunities. His candid advice in <i>Work Less, Make More</i> provides bold and practical wisdom for any person, of any vocation, who wants to lift the lid on their creative potential and move into unexplored territories of freedom and opportunity. <br /><i><b>~ Ian Freestone</b></i><br /><br />I found <i>Work Less, Make More</i>--part memoir, part how-to guide--to be truly extraordinary! James brings his unique analytical insights about how to think regarding complex issues in business. He describes the systems that he has designed to shape both meaningful work and relationships,as well as, a life worth living. Now isn't that what we all want? So many authors attempt to "motivate" you,without giving any real instruction. I find that James provides both. Every page is full of so many principles, wisdom and insights--and I love how James incorporates his history and his life in such a thoughtful way. His book has already changed how I think about making decisions in my life and in my business. It's a must read. Highly recommended.<br /><i><b>~ Tim Papadopoulos</b></i><br /><br />----<br /><br />In 2006, whilst working in a full-time job, James Schramko wrote this in a notebook:<br /><br /><i>MY GOALS … create automated income so that I am independently wealthy and enjoy my life passionately.</i><br /><br />Within three years, he’d built his own business and achieved those goals. At which point he set about helping his coaching clients do the same. Leveraging his knowledge and experience, they were able to make more money while reducing their work hours. Significantly.<br /><br /><b>This freed them up to spend more time living.</b><br /><br />It’s easy to think working less and making more is something available only to a blessed few. But James has proven over and over again that this is not the case. All you require is:<br /><br />• An open mind,<br />• The ability to focus on what’s important,<br />• An understanding of business models, and<br />• A willingness to challenge your assumptions.<br /><br />Work Less, Make More will break down all the barriers standing between you and the above. <br /><br /><b>It will teach you how to effectively leverage yourself, your team and your business via:</b><br /><br />• Increasing your personal effectiveness<br />• Planning and goalsetting<br />• Learning focus and the power of 64:4<br />• Building a team<br />• Creating an offer that converts<br />• Leveraging the Profit Formula to boost cash flow<br />• Understanding the importance of Customer Lifetime Value<br />• Choosing the right business model<br />• Removing compromise from your life<br /><br /><b>This book is for you if you are:</b><br /><br />• A business owner (big or small)<br />• Currently in a job with a hard ceiling on how much you can earn<br />• Overworked and underpaid<br />• Stressed out and missing out on precious time with family and friends.<br /><br />If you want to build a business that gives you financial peace of mind while allowing you to enjoy life NOW, not later ... Work Less, Make More will get you on your way. It will help ensure the business you're building will work for you, not the other way around.

<p><b>Named one of the best books of 2017 by <i>Time, </i><i>People, Amazon.com,</i><i> The Guardian, Paste Magazine, </i>&<i> Vogue</i></b></p><p><b>Tina Brown kept delicious daily diaries throughout her eight spectacular years as editor-in-chief of <i>Vanity Fair</i>. Today they provide an incendiary portrait of the flash and dash and power brokering of the Excessive Eighties in New York and Hollywood.</b></p><p><i>The Vanity Fair Diaries</i> is the story of an Englishwoman barely out of her twenties who arrives in New York City with a dream. Summoned from London in hopes that she can save Condé Nast's troubled new flagship <i>Vanity Fair</i>, Tina Brown is immediately plunged into the maelstrom of the competitive New York media world and the backstabbing rivalries at the court of the planet's slickest, most glamour-focused magazine company. She survives the politics, the intrigue, and the attempts to derail her by a simple stratagem: succeeding. In the face of rampant skepticism, she triumphantly reinvents a failing magazine.</p><p>Here are the inside stories of <i>Vanity Fair</i> scoops and covers that sold millions—the Reagan kiss, the meltdown of Princess Diana's marriage to Prince Charles, the sensational Annie Leibovitz cover of a gloriously pregnant, naked Demi Moore. In the diary's cinematic pages, the drama, the comedy, and the struggle of running an "it" magazine come to life. Brown's <i>Vanity Fair Diaries</i> is also a woman's journey, of making a home in a new country and of the deep bonds with her husband, their prematurely born son, and their daughter.</p><p>Astute, open-hearted, often riotously funny, Tina Brown's <i>The Vanity Fair Diaries</i> is a compulsively fascinating and intimate chronicle of a woman's life in a glittering era.</p>

<b><b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER<i><br /> USA TODAY </i>BESTSELLER</b><br /><br />Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are the four most influential companies on the planet. Just about everyone thinks they know how they got there. Just about everyone is wrong. <br /></b><br />For all that’s been written about the Four over the last two decades, no one has captured their power and staggering success as insightfully as Scott Galloway. <br /><br /> Instead of buying the myths these compa­nies broadcast, Galloway asks fundamental questions. How did the Four infiltrate our lives so completely that they’re almost impossible to avoid (or boycott)? Why does the stock market forgive them for sins that would destroy other firms? And as they race to become the world’s first trillion-dollar company, can anyone chal­lenge them? <br /><br /> In the same irreverent style that has made him one of the world’s most celebrated business professors, Galloway deconstructs the strategies of the Four that lurk beneath their shiny veneers. He shows how they manipulate the fundamental emotional needs that have driven us since our ancestors lived in caves, at a speed and scope others can’t match. And he reveals how you can apply the lessons of their ascent to your own business or career. <br /><br /> Whether you want to compete with them, do business with them, or simply live in the world they dominate, you need to understand the Four.
