Daymond John (Founder/FUBU)My good friend @tferriss is back with another great book. Tribe of Mentors features some of the most influential moguls across industries who offer advice on how to navigate life. It comes out Monday, so make sure you add this to your reading list.
Marvin Liao (Partner/500 Startups)My list would be (besides the ones I mentioned in answer to the previous question) both business & Fiction/Sci-Fi and ones I personally found helpful to myself. The business books explain just exactly how business, work & investing are in reality & how to think properly & differentiate yourself. On the non-business side, a mix of History & classic fiction to understand people, philosophy to make sense of life and Science fiction to picture what the future could be like (not always utopian).
Antonio Eram (Founder & CEO/NETOPIA mobilPay)This book was recommended by Antonio when asked for titles he would recommend to young people interested in his career path.
Lex Na Wei Ming (CEO/Bountie.io)I have always been a huge fan of his, started out reading his 4 Hour Work Week and now his latest, Tribe of Mentors.
Cliff Hartono (CEO/Jasri Partners)Tim Ferriss’ latest book, Tribe of Mentors, contains over 130+ interviews with a diverse collection of top athletes, artists, CEOs and entrepreneurs. One of the questions he asks is “what is the book (or books) you’ve given most as a gift, and why? Or what are one to three books that have greatly influenced your life?”. This has given me an extensive booklist recommended by amazing high performers like Dustin Moskovitz, Gary Vaynerchuk, Eric Ripert, Kelly Slater and Neil Gaiman (just to name a few).
When facing life’s questions, who do you turn to for advice? We all need mentors, particularly when the odds seem stacked against us. To find his own, four-time #1 best-selling author Tim Ferriss tracked down more than 100 eclectic experts to help him, and you, navigate life. Through short, action-packed profiles, he shares their secrets for success, happiness, meaning, and more. No matter the challenge or opportunity, something in these pages can help.
