Getting rich is not just about luck; happiness is not just a trait we are born with. These aspirations may seem out of reach, but building wealth and being happy are skills we can learn.
So what are these skills, and how do we learn them? What are the principles that should guide our efforts? What does progress really look like?
Naval Ravikant is an entrepreneur, philosopher, and investor who has captivated the world with his principles for building wealth and creating long-term happiness. The Almanack of Naval Ravikant is a collection of Naval’s wisdom and experience from the last ten years, shared as a curation of his most insightful interviews and poignant reflections. This isn’t a how-to book, or a step-by-step gimmick. Instead, through Naval’s own words, you will learn how to walk your own unique path toward a happier, wealthier life.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ - Wow. Just wow. Naval is our modern day philosopher.
Already purchased 5 copies to hand out and put on shelf. This will sit right next to Poor Charlie’s Almanac and Dalio Principals for me to read and review and read again for years to come. I think Naval said instead of reading 1000 books, read the 100 best books 10 times. This is up there with the best of all time when it comes to content about life, wealth, and how to live.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ - Thought-provoking and high value per minute reading
I am not a Naval Ravikant follower. I didn't know about him before this book. I am amazed at the value per minute I get while reading. I am constantly leaning back, looking up to the sky, and thinking about just how different my decision making will be now that I've been exposed to these ideas.
The one key takeaway: happiness is a muscle that we need to exercise. (and that reading opens your eyes to the possible.)
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ - I dare you not to highlight the whole book.
Wow. This book is phenomenal.
Eric does an incredible job distilling the absolute minimum viable principles to understand the process of building long term wealth.
The book is a mixture of mind expanding realizations, harsh truths, meditations, helpful mantras and welcome punches to the face as needed.
Could not recommend this more highly for anyone aspiring to have more wealth, wisdom, time, happiness, or peace.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ - I loved reading this book!
This is from someone, who read the PDF document, witnessed the progress on Twitter (albeit not from the start), and still waiting for the Amazon order to ship. I am not directly involved with this project in any way, just a reader.
First, I want to talk about Naval. He has broadened my perspective on wealth creation and continues to inspire me to think bigger and better. So, his content, tweets, and interviews are guaranteed to be worthwhile. Plus, he seldomly goes on media, so the wisdom in each conversation is even more valuable.
Second, I want to talk about Eric. This book is the product of several beautiful coincidences: Eric making a casual poll on Twitter to compile Naval's words, Naval giving Eric his blessings & dumping all his Tweets on Eric, and Eric prioritizing this over everything to produce a high-quality book of 200+ pages. I really want to thank Eric for taking the lead to do this thing many want but won't do. It's just like a start-up: we all want this thing, so why aren't anyone doing it already?
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ - What are your expectations?
If you find Naval's wisdom enlightening, but haven't read / listened to his past content, this is a terrific book for you. It collected and curated some of the gems of his wisdom. They were organised coherently. The visuals were wonderful.
If you have read / heard most of his stuff, there isn't much additional in this book. I expected to read more about the author's take on the content, or different perspectives/interpretations of Naval's wisdom. The visuals did that, but that's about it.
