Tim Ferriss is a self-experimenter and bestselling author, best known for The 4-Hour Workweek, which has been translated into 40+ languages. Newsweek calls him "the world's best human guinea pig," and The New York Times calls him "a cross between Jack Welch and a Buddhist monk." In this show, he deconstructs world-class performers from eclectic areas (investing, chess, pro sports, etc.), digging deep to find the tools, tactics, and tricks that listeners can use.

The goal of this blog and my podcast is to push you outside of your comfort zoneand force you to question assumptions. This why I invite divergent thinkers and world-class performers who often disagree. I might interview Tony Robbins (Part 1, Part 2) and then Matt Mullenweg, as I did. OrI might have SamHarris, PhDon and later invite aseemingly oppositeguest like... Glenn Beck. This interview is a wild ride, and ithappened — oddly enough -- thanks to alate-nightsauna session. I was catching up with an old friend, who is mixed-race, a Brown University grad, and liberal in almost every senseof the word. I casually asked him, “If you could pick one person to be on the podcast, who would it be?" “Glenn Beck,” he answered without a moment’s hesitation. “His story is FASCINATING." He went on to describe how Glenn hit rock bottom and restarted his life in his 30’s. Fast forward to 2014,Forbesnamed him to their annualCelebrity 100 Power List and pegged his earnings at $90 million for that year. Thisplaced him ahead of people like Mark Burnett, Jimmy Fallon, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Will Smith. Glenn's site,TheBlaze.com, gets somewhere between 30 and 50 million unique visitors per month. This interview is neither a “gotcha” interviewnor a softball interview. I ask some very tough questions (some from listeners), but my primary goal was to pull out routines, habits, books, etc. that you can use. There is no political agenda whatsoever. If anything, this is a story of entrepreneurship,and whether you love Glenn, hateGlenn, or have never heard his name, there is a lot to learn from him.
