Rating: 5 out of 5.

The book is a compilation of Naval’s thoughts combined with his tweets and insights into his already done interviews. Naval Ravikant is the Founder and CEO of AngelList and has had several other successful businesses under his belt. He started sharing his knowledge and thoughts on startups and life a few years ago. He quickly gained popularity and has several eyes and ears on him. He is seen as someone who has a mix of philosophy and technology. Since he is a thinker who has time and time again proven his capability, he has amassed a few million followers who want to listen to his ideas. I am one of those people.

I got introduced to Naval’s ideas through several podcasts. He has a very famous compilation on YouTube around the idea of how to create wealth and be more creative with our jobs. Similarly, his tweets are quite rich of these quotes that he keeps jotting down from time to time as a journal. This almanac provided a great view into these ideas and his thinking. Though if you have already consumed his other podcast or tweets, it might feel repetitive. Also, it would be better to familiarize yourself with Naval’s work and his thoughts before reading this book. He talks about a lot more than what is in this book, and in a more streamlined and detailed manner. Otherwise, it might come across as half-baked because it’s not his all ideas or in a streamlined flow.
