The Third Door takes listeners on an unprecedented adventure - from hacking Warren Buffett’s shareholders meeting to chasing Larry King through a grocery store to celebrating in a nightclub with Lady Gaga - as Alex Banayan travels from icon to icon, decoding their success. After remarkable one-on-one interviews with Bill Gates, Maya Angelou, Steve Wozniak, Jane Goodall, Larry King, Jessica Alba, Pitbull, Tim Ferriss, Quincy Jones, and many more, Alex discovered the one key they have in common: they all took the Third Door.

Alex is amazing. I've read and listened to thousands of books in my 49 years and Alex Banayan has written one of the absolute best. It's a page turner par excellence - or a minute eater in my case - as I listened to it all in one sitting. It is has everything. You will laugh, cry and be fully inspired. Alex's journey from boredom to boats, boardrooms, nightclubs with Lady Gaga and even meeting Bill Gates's in his private office - is packed full of energy and a great deal of Wisdom. His quest to interview the successful and discover how they started and succeeded gets crystallised into his compelling concept of 'The Third Door' which is a fantastic metaphor. It is no understatement to say this book has the potential to be the modern day equivalent of Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich. Alex learns about Happiness from Steve Wozniak, Humanity and Wisdom from Maya Anjelou and Exploring the World and Life from Quincy Jones to mention but a few. The heartfelt ending where this young man loses his father cannot help but touch you deeply. IF YOU WANT TO LEARN ABOUT YOURSELF, LIFE AND PROPERLY SUCCEEDING, FAIL TO GET THIS BOOK AT YOUR PERIL. Now, I am going to get the Kindle Version so I can read it and absorb it some more, then I'm going to listen again.
