"Naval is an incredible source of wisdom. The problem was, you had to look all over to find it. This book is the only place where Naval's genius is all collected. I've already read it twice, and plan to re-read it at least 2 times a year. I can think of no higher praise for a book."
--Tucker Max, 4x New York Times bestselling author
"I want everyone in my life to read this book, especially the happiness section."
--Kaylan from Kansas City, USA

--Brent from Columbia, USA
"The clearest multidisciplinary thinker on the internet."
--George from London, England (via Twitter)
"I can't say anyone else on Twitter has influenced my thinking and habits as much as Naval. There have been a few topics (reading, meditation, and meetings) where Naval's advice has completely changed my approach. His words have stuck with me for years."
--David from San Francisco (via Twitter)
"You need a better title."
--Mohit from Singapore (via Twitter)

UPDATE: 1/5/20. I was going to read this entire book again to start the new year. I purchased the Kindle Version and quickly noticed, ITS THE WRONG BOOK. Haha. How does this happen. Right cover, right page, wrong content. Please fix.
The one key takeaway: happiness is a muscle that we need to exercise. (and that reading opens your eyes to the possible.)
Eric does an incredible job distilling the absolute minimum viable principles to understand the process of building long term wealth.
The book is a mixture of mind expanding realizations, harsh truths, meditations, helpful mantras and welcome punches to the face as needed.
Could not recommend this more highly for anyone aspiring to have more wealth, wisdom, time, happiness, or peace.
First, I want to talk about Naval. He has broadened my perspective on wealth creation and continues to inspire me to think bigger and better. So, his content, tweets, and interviews are guaranteed to be worthwhile. Plus, he seldomly goes on media, so the wisdom in each conversation is even more valuable.
Second, I want to talk about Eric. This book is the product of several beautiful coincidences: Eric making a casual poll on Twitter to compile Naval's words, Naval giving Eric his blessings & dumping all his Tweets on Eric, and Eric prioritizing this over everything to produce a high-quality book of 200+ pages. I really want to thank Eric for taking the lead to do this thing many want but won't do. It's just like a start-up: we all want this thing, so why aren't anyone doing it already?
Third, everyone who is part of the production process is incredible. Publishing is a very messy business. Very complicated, sometimes frustrating. However, this book has such great design, format, edits, graphics, etc. To the twenty+ people working on this and even more beta-testing readers, thank you for making this a possibility.
Last, Almanack is something that is always worth your money. Benjamin Franklin and Charlie Munger are behind some of the most re-readable books, and I think Naval's book will be one that's representative of the 21st Century. To publish an almanack, the subject first needs to have enough substance for that. Naval certainly does. (Peter Thiel's Zero to One is sort of his almanack, when you think about it)
I hope this book can sell a lot of copies. Even more important, I hope people who read it can actively make use of the lessons and wisdom contained. Then, readers from other countries can get their hands on translations. People read less and less on average now, and I'm worried about the future as depicted in "Fahrenheit 451", when people have to recite books...
Buy a book, pass on the fire!
Just reading the first 80 pages will make you deeply consider your life choices. Highly recommend this compilation of Naval’s wisdom and life-perspective. Going to buy the hard copy.
If you have read / heard most of his stuff, there isn't much additional in this book. I expected to read more about the author's take on the content, or different perspectives/interpretations of Naval's wisdom. The visuals did that, but that's about it.

Once I've read I will update.
After the (correct) front page the content inside is the book 'Called to Care' that you can find at the below link.
Please fix amazon.
Fantastic book that I’ll be buying for many friends.
