Originals is another one of those books that suggest a bunch principles that will help you be more successful in life; it then proceeds to fluff up these methods with some backed up anecdotal evidence or reference to some sociology and psychology papers. So do not expect anything hugely intellectual here, but nevertheless a reasonably light/easy/fun read that gave me further confirmation bias on a number of practices I currently do. Overall, I wouldn’t particularly recommend others to read this book, but if you got stuck reading it it is actually quite fun. Moreover, if you are also not the kind of person that thinks in worse-case scenarios, or questions the default,  or balances risk profiles, and welcomes criticism (like Dalio’s Bridgewater culture); then perhaps this book could offer you quite a lot of insight.
