Oh my gosh - where do I begin? My ongoing crush/fight with my frenemy Tim Ferris. His books make me think. They also make fine door stops and/or weapons. They are written from Tim's perspective as a single-ish guy in his 40s. He is writing for single-ish guys in their 30s - 40s. You can see where the fight part comes in. Still, he has some great insights.


Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What It Means for Modern Relationships

This book was fascinating. Why is monogamy so darned difficult? Why is the divorce rate so high? Why is our society so violent when our nearest DNA relatives, the bonobos, are peaceful? This book answers a lot of questions ... theoretically. It provides little advice on what to do about it given the culture, rules, polices, and mores we have been born into. Still, knowledge is power, right?


The Tim Ferris Podcast

Tim interviews really fascinating people. It's heavily weighted to men in their forties who are technology entrepreneurs, but I've learned a lot ... sometime, by arguing (in my head) with them.

NOTE: The podcasts are longish and I don't have time for that. I listen to them at 1.5 speed and it works out just fine.


The Tim Ferris Experiment
