BOOK REVIEW: Tribe of Mentors – Short Life Advice from the Best in the World by Timothy Ferriss

Pages: 624, Kindle Edition

Published: 21st November 2017, by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Cover Rating: 5/5 (hint: something is in symmetry, see carefully)

Published May, 2017 by Riverhead Books

Pages: 352, Kindle Edition
