Tement because it s not the first reaction you might have to the title or subtitle Alex Banayan goes on an adventure to get all the tidbits from all the world leaders in their respective spaces He becomes part of the club Something we all dream of during our childhood and adolescent is to be famous and to have an impact In the process of writing this book he became part of that club One to have an impact In the process of writing this book he became part of that club One the most important thing that this book teaches is the manipulation of an old parable That being money buys happiness I think Alex does a great job of breaking down this cliche statement and replacing it with what I like to call a modernised adjustment This book is an accumulation of Second Time Loving knowledge that Alex gains from these people He also appreciates the necessi This isind of a bizarre book Supposedly it is the tale of a wild uest to find the secrets of how the world s most successful people got their lucky break There are two problems with this Firstly the secrets he does find out are completely unoriginal and uninspiring Be persistent Tim Ferriss Find hidden reserves of mental strength Sugar Ray Leonard Have a business strategy Bill Gates How fascinating Secondly the wild uest is for the most part the tale of an entitled wealthy id hassled a bunch of celebrities for their time until a few of them gave in and talked to himSure there are some funny moments along the way But most of it is just a pretty standard tale of how if you are an overly confident young man from a wealthy and educated background you can pursue whatever you want in lifeOne element of the book I found particularly annoying When Banayan does eventually manage to meet some interesting people he is completely incapable of interviewing them in a way which elicits anything of interest He proves this repeatedly Talking to Tim Ferriss he completely missed the point that Ferriss was trying to save him from himself by telling him not to be so annoying Talking to Bill Gates he asks terrible uestions which don t really elicit the interesting insights he was hoping for Asking Warren Buffett uestions at a shareholder meeting he gets them completely wrong to the point that people are actually laughing at himThis in reality is the story of some bro who has no idea what he "Is Doing And Is "doing and is carried along on a wave of self confidence nothing He s an idiot Indeed about 75% of this book is tales of someone who doesn t now how to secure an interview trying to secure an interview The other 25% is someone who doesn t Dark Awakening know how to conduct an interview conducting an interview I got this book thinking that I would be learning about how each famous person found their 3rd door I like the concept of the 3rd door and do believe it is a fantastic way to look at life However the book isn t about what the 3rd door was for these people It was about him trying to get interviews with famous people and getting rejected I hate to give the author one star because you can see how important writing this book was to him I found about Alex from the Cathy Heller podcast when she interviewed him about this book and it was a fantastic interview Just listen to the podcast and skip the book If the Third Door isn t on your reading list then I don tnow what should be This is THE craziest non fiction story I have ever read Alex Banayan has a flair for storytelling like no other I read the book for 2 hours at a stretch Stopped and tried to go to bed Except I couldn t sleep That night I stayed up till 5 AM reading that book It is.
