Description

Forbes #1 Career Book to Read in 2018

The National Best Seller

The larger-than-life journey of an 18-year-old college freshman who set out from his dorm room to track down Bill Gates, Lady Gaga, and dozens more of the world’s most successful people to uncover how they broke through and launched their careers. 

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.  

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 100 times, climb over the dumpster, crack open the window, sneak through the kitchen - there’s always a way in. Whether it’s how Bill Gates sold his first piece of software or how Steven Spielberg became the youngest studio director in Hollywood history, they all took the Third Door.

This story saved my future...

I’m a 23 years old female studying advertising design, dying inside for not feeling like I was fulfilling my purpose or any of my dreams. As I came through this book (by a very random way) I started listening to it non stop... To make the long story short, I finally found what I’ve been looking for throughout all these years: a savior to my future. But not a person specifically, instead, a life long experience’s story kind of savior... It showed me that life is better when you always enter by “the third door”, and that possibilities are those that you make yourself.

Thank you Alex for being brave enough to take on this journey. I’m forever grateful.

Cordially,

Laurimar Melendez

A must listen for every millennial

This book is a must read for any and all millennials. The story and lessons covered in this book are AMAZING. As an aspiring entrepreneur this book has inspired me beyond belief to accomplish this life. The fact that the author narrated this book, I believe, made it even more impactful as you get the true emotion and makes feel like you are on the journey right along side him.

The acknowledgment section became very real and emotional for me as I thought of my late grandfather and my still living father. The lessons learned about relationships and true friendships brought me to tears. This is a book that I will share with my children as they get older and live life.

Thank you, Mr. Banayan for your sacrifice and inspiration. Thank you for creating and sharing this masterpiece with the world.

Highly Recommend

What a great book this was to listen to on my commutes to and from work. While I do not typically choose books of this nature, I was drawn to download The Third Door after hearing Alex on The Rich Roll podcast; and, I am so glad I did!

The story had me crying and laughing along and each chapter only seemed to get better than the last, which is impressive considering who all was interviewed along his journey. I can’t recommend it enough and hope you will gain as much from it as I have!

A must read (listen)!

I bought this book after hearing Alex Banayan on The Rich Roll Podcast. Even though I’m about the farthest you can get from the demographic this book was originally intended (a 42 year old mom and wife content in her career and life) I was so drawn in by Alex’s storytelling and experience I wanted to hear more. I’m SO glad I did! Beautifully read by the author, Alex Banayan, The Third Door is engaging from the start. I bought the book in the morning and listened to every minute until it was finished, I couldn’t put it down. A combination of amazing storytelling, beautiful reflection, and the power of possibility, this book is full of entertainment and insight no matter your career, passion, or place in life. It’s infused with what’s possible when we believe in that which moves us and take action towards our mission with knowledge, failure, growth and purpose. But for me the greatest take away is the power within us all to help and connect to one another, to be door openers and window finders, to move and be moved towards our own mission and in service of others. I loved this book and cannot recommend it enough.

Never gets to the point

Too long with unimportant details about how he tried to get interviews with people. Where are the ACTUAL interviews with all these people? That is what i bought this book for.

Great beginning of, hopefully, many achievements

Unbelievable achievements at such a young age. It looks like the beginning of what can be a promising career. He has certainly found his calling and time will tell how it evolves beyond his personal account in this book.

What, in my opinion, detracts from this book is how self focused it is and it seems that most of what was talked in the actual interviews was glossed over to give way to the authors personal feeling of what was being told.

I would have enjoyed more detailed raw accounts of what was said in the interviews instead of a steam of consciousness of what the interview "felt" like or was interpreted as. However by the end it seemed as Alex had learned more from his previous interviews.

I want to thank Alex for his brave endeavor and the risks he took, it made a hell of a story. I am definitely looking forward to whatever project Alex pursues in the future as his view on life matures and his web of contacts and friends grows.

An inspiration and depiction of what happens and what to expect when you follow your calling. Keep jumping the hurdles!

Great Stories , Over produced/Read

Great book. Perfect for the entrepreneurs needing some motivation in getting started or even the current entrepreneurs looking to rekindle a flame which got you going in the beginning. Loved every story in particular Qi Lu who's field is one i'm akin to. The only real thing which let this book down was the over production in the story telling. Not every word has to be emphasised as if it was a thriller being read to the world through a radio. Be calm and just tell the story not every word needs to pronounced with such theatrics to give it more value, it is credible as it is. I can only assume that the author has a hidden passion for theatre or the stage from this. If I am right then everything prior to this makes sense. Just a small criticism for a very fine piece.

This is one of those books that tell you everything you already know, but you still feel like it's teaching you something new. It's absolutely thrilling and exciting to read/listen and I can't recommend it enough. it's like a life's lesson.

Das beste Buch was ich seit langem gelesen habe!

Ich lese relativ viele Bücher (1-2 pro Woche) aber ich habe lange nicht mehr ein so gutes und spannendes Buch gelesen. Ich empfehle definitiv die Hörbuch Version, da dort der ganze Enthusiasmus von Alex Perfekt herüber gebracht wird. Ich glaube, dass in diesem Buch für jeden etwas wertvolles dabei sein wird.

Most inspiring audio book of 2018

This is probably the most inspiring book about chasing a dream and not giving up that I have come across so far. I finished it in a few days and wished it would have been longer. if you are looking for inspiration or hope that change is possible, this might be for you.
