Looking to become a happier, more successful version of yourself?

The Almanack of Naval Ravikant is a compilation of a decade’s worth of wisdom and experience from entrepreneur, philosopher, and investor Naval Ravikant.


As founder of multiple successful ventures, including Epinions and AngelList, Naval has become a startup culture icon and attracted readers and listeners across the world.

After a lifetime of study and application of philosophy, economics, and wealth creation, Naval has proven the impact of his principles.

With his guidance, you don’t have to pick one: you can learn how to be both successful and happy.


Curated by Eric Jorgeson, The Almanack of Naval Ravikant collects the life lessons shared by Naval over the past decade via tweets, blog posts, and podcasts.

So you don’t need to scour the internet for his old interviews and tweets from 2011. Thanks to Mr. Jorgeson, they have a permanent, accessible home in The Almanack.

To start, you’ll learn how to build and develop the skill set that makes you wealthy.

Instead of spreading yourself thin through the hustle, Naval’s advice will help you focus your energy on understanding how wealth is created and leveraged.


The Almanack of Naval Ravikant is divided into two sections: wealth and happiness.

In the second section about Happiness, you’ll learn lessons about how happiness isn’t something out of your control.

Happiness is a choice, and it’s a choice you can start living by today. (Happiness is also the truth, in the wise words of Pharrell.)

Just like exercising improves your fitness and #gains, The Almanack helps steadily and methodically improve your happiness baseline.


The Alamanack isn’t a how-to book, or a step-by-step gimmick. The point of the book is to teach you how to walk your own unique path toward a happier, wealthier life.

That’s why the last chapter of the book is titled “Saving Yourself”—this is about you and the decisions you make.

Naval’s words will help you figure out how to choose to care for yourself, build yourself, grow yourself, and free yourself.

And because growing means you’re always learning, The Almanack also includes a bonus recommended reading list from Naval himself! Talk about optimizing your resources.


Whether you’re managing a business empire or just trying to build the startup of your dreams with your BFF, achieving both wealth and joy can seem an impossible milestone.

But just like you invest your time in learning how to use amazing software, you also need to invest time in learning how to be successful and happy.

That way, the next time someone asks how work is going, you can say with all the confidence of Barney Stinson that it’s awesome.
