Tribe Of Mentors is a book written by Tim Ferris. In it are short interviews with amazing people who are creative, smart, personable, focused or humorous. I recommend that you go out and buy this book. It’s one of those books that you keep around as a reference manual. One of the questions that Tim asks is “What purchase of $100 or less has most positively impacted your life in the last 6 months (or in recent memory)?” This page highlights the products or things that were mentioned in the book. To purchase at Amazon, just click here. Tim also asks what book people give the most as gifts. It’s one thing to recommend a book. It’s another thing to buy it and give it to someone. Some of those books mentioned are listed here as well. Enjoy.

Sarah Elizabeth Lewis – (pg. 336) is a professor of history of art and architecture at Harvard University. She writes “I’m a sucker for a good, plain, no-lined notebook from Moleskine.”
Brian Koppelman (pg.328) is the co-creator of the hit tv show Billions. He’s written a lot of things, mainly scripts for movies. When asked about books that he gives as gifts, he mentions four books. Haruki Murakami’s book “What I Talk About When I Talk About Running” was the first on the list. Brian says “Although the writer is writing about his running life….what he’s really talking about is how to strip away everything that you don’t need to achieve your purpose. It’s a rigorous, inspiring book that challenges the reader to step up.” Get more info about the book here.
