Publisher's Summary

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 10 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.

Definitely worth a listen

This is one of the books you can finish in a sitting. I found his wisdom coming from various sources. he quotes them and does provide citation to them.

this book will tell you who Naval is and how he looks at life. he tells what is important for him. he doesn't tell you what you should do. he tells you what he did and how it worked out for him.

Modern day Meditations by Marcus ‘Naval Ravikant’ Aurelius!

This audio book is clearly a modern day Meditations equivalent. So much information is packed into it. Was very helpful to declutter my mind especially when I was struggling with a few thoughts. It will not make the yes/no decisions for you but give you enough clarity on what basis should you make your decisions and to stick by it. I took several notes during the listen and plan to return to listening every once in a while. Thanks Naval Ravikant!

So full of wisdom

This is a book about how to get rich and how to lead a happy and peaceful life. Very practical and relatable.

A few lessons I shall start incorporating immediately (after all, like he says, time is everything)
1. Toning down my compulsive need to finish a book-Finite time, infinite books
2. Understand the basics well-Take time to understand concepts very well and not get bogged down by fancy terminology
3. Invest in my learning every single day-most of the things one learns out of the formal education system
4. Be honest and authentic to my true self
5. Figure out my specific knowledge. I think I am going to follow this book with Ikigai-something I have had unread on my Kindle for the longest time
6. Deepen my practice of meditation.

Interesting

Heard about him on a TikTok. It wasn’t just a brag list of accomplishments or a step by step guide to happiness. It contained many insightful observations about living life in our modern times and rules that he lived by. He provided several lists of books, blogs, etc., that he utilizes. It left me wondering if life is really that simple.

Very OK

Most of the topics covered were great and had good tips. Although did not appreciate the end on his view of religion, but to each their own. Was not much new to what I already know, however the delivery made you not even remember what was just talked about. So incredibly monotone and the narrator sounded bored as he spoke. Honestly wish I wouldn’t have purchased, better books like this elsewhere.

Inspiring quick read.

Naval might not be someone that the everyday person has come across. I randomly came across him from reading Tim Ferriss Tribe of Mentors. Navel interview had such a profound effect on me that I've got a phone reminder that goes off every wed telling me to reread his chapter.

Naval does not write this book. It's a collection of his thoughts, blogs, tweets and interview neatly repackaged as a guide to life covering wellbeing, wealth and happiness. Naval is known for championing being your authentic self, and the book explains the step he took to live a life that allows him to be precisely that.

It's full of insightful and inspiring quotable, as Eric has managed to create a book that covers each of the above themes individually, and it's written in a way where you can dip in and out, not needing to read it from cover to cover. It's a small book, I listened to the audible, which is just under five hours long.

For me, it's a great book to start your 2022 (or any time in life) if you’re looking for some inspiration.

Feel cheated- Available for free elsewhere

One of the very first things that you hear in this book is that it is available for free in kindle and audio format. Feel cheated that Audible charged me a credit to download. The book might be fine (I’ve not got that far into it yet) but I have to listen to it feeling like I’ve been conned, which is not a good start!

It is what it claims to be

I've been following Naval for a few years now and every time I come across him, I get positively impressed with his wisdom and perspective. This book puts lots of his thoughts together. I found it an easy and interesting listen. What was lacking though was a clear structure of the book. Also narrator was mediocre.

Terrible messages in this book.

I couldn’t get past 80 minutes. Essentially telling people to judge everything on a dollar value alone. For someone to say it would be better to hire an assistant for their mother as opposed to helping them speaks volumes in who they are as a person and where their values are. Don’t bother if you value more things in the world than just dollars.

I had listened to some podcasts and interviews with Naval and admired his intellect and ways of thinking. This book does a great job of condensing some great ideas, quotes, mental models, advice from Naval in a way that enjoyable and inspiring to listen to.
