This is a quick read that is meant to be skimmed, per the author's intro. It's meant for the reader to skip around to topics of interest, and forgo anything that's not of interest (that would be all the psychedelic gurus, for me). Like any other self help book, this one didn't magically '*~change my life`*~ but I did encounter some really interesting ideas and people that I'll go read more about. It may look daunting because of the size, but the formatting takes up a lot of space. It's worth borrowing from the library, and may be worth buying if you're the type of person who'll read something then pass it along to someone else to read.

If you are a fan of Tim Ferriss' podcast, then you will likely enjoy this book. But, then again, if you are a fan of the podcast, you have already heard nearly everything in this book already, as Tools of the Titans is just a compilation of sound bytes from the many guests on the show.
And by "Titans" we are referring to mostly Silicon Valley tech millionaires and self-help guru millionaires... nearly all white men, of course.
Like nearly all self-help books like this, you are likely to pull a few great tidbits, advice, and references to other sources that can be useful out of the 500 pages, and that will make it worth checking out from the library and giving it a quick read. I certainly would recommend purchasing it.
And there really isn't that much profanity. Other than a few quotes that feature conversational use of the f-word, there isn't much to get offended by there.

This book is not worth reading. It is a 637 page rambling, poorly written, me-centred tome replete with profane language.

There are a few helpful tactics one can glean from this book, though most boil down to common sense and asking yourself a series of questions. However, some of the routines and habits of these so-called titans are downright dangerous. Namely, the consumption of hallucinogens, ketogenic diets (think Atkins), and other reckless behaviors. A lot of the interviewees swear like sailors, making them sound overly modern and stupid.
