The author, Alex Banayan, doesn’t know what to do with his life.
He’s enrolled at college but doesn’t feel like it’s the right thing for him.
So, he starts wondering what successful people did early in their lives. Before they were well-known, rich, and successful.
This leads him on his journey towards interviewing icons like Tim Ferriss, Bill Gates, Lady Gaga, and many more.
The more he learns about these people, the more he realizes that they view the world differently.
Here’s what he writes:
Life, business, success . . . it’s just like a nightclub. There are always three ways in.
There’s the First Door: the main entrance, where 99 percent of people wait in line, hoping to get in.
The Second Door: the VIP entrance, where the billionaires and celebrities slip through.
But what no one tells you is that there is always, always . . . the Third Door. It’s the entrance where you have to jump out of line, run down the alley, bang on the door a hundred times, crack open the window, sneak through the kitchen–there’s always a way.
This book is about finding that Third Door.
