Tim Ferriss - Human guinea pig, author

Tim Ferriss is author of "The 4-Hour Workweek," a self-improvement program of four steps: defining aspirations, managing time, creating automatic income and escaping the trappings of the 9-to-5 life.

Tim Ferris brings an analytical, yet accessible, approach to the challenges of self-improvement and career advancement through what he calls "lifestyle design." His 2007 book, The 4-Hour Workweek, and his lectures on productivity are stuffed with moving, encouraging anecdotes -- often from his own life -- that show how simple decisions, made despite fears or hesitation, can make for a drastically more meaningful day-to-day experience at work, or in life.

Word-of-blog chatter in Silicon Valley may have propelled his book to bestselling success, but Ferriss himself takes a fervid stance against the distractions of technology toys that promote unnecessary multitasking. Following the success of his book, Ferriss has become a full-time angel investor.

Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks - Religious leader

In a world violently polarized by extremists, Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks is proposing and advocating solutions to mounting religious intolerance.

Rabbi Lord Sacks is one of Judaism’s spiritual leaders, and exercises a primary influence on the thought and philosophy of Jews and people of all faiths worldwide. Since stepping down as Chief Rabbi of the UK and Commonwealth in 2013, Rabbi Lord Sacks has become an increasingly well-known speaker, respected moral voice and writer; his 2015 book is Not in God's Name: Confronting Religious Violence.

Granted a seat in the British House of Lords in 2009, Rabbi Lord Sacks is a key Jewish voice for universalism and an embrace of tolerance between religions and cultures. He rejects the “politics of anger” brought about by the way “we have acted as if markets can function without morals, international corporations without social responsibility, and economic systems without regard to their effect on the people left stranded by the shifting tide." He also sees, as a key idea for faith in our times, that unity in heaven creates diversity on earth.

Garry Kasparov - Grandmaster, analyst

Garry Kasparov is esteemed by many as the greatest chess player of all time. Now he’s engaged in a game with far higher stakes: the preservation of democracy.

When 22-year-old Garry Kasparov became the world’s youngest chess Grand Champion, few could predict his turbulent career in chess or as a dissident. His chessboard wizardry was already the stuff of legend when, in 1997, Kasparov made headlines when he lost a rematch to IBM’s Deep Blue supercomputer, ushering AI into the public sphere.

Kasparov’s book Winter Is Coming details the rise of Putin’s Russia, Kasparov’s persecution and self-exile, and serves chilling warnings of reactionary forces gathering in the West. He is the chairman of the Human Rights Foundation, succeeding his predecessor Vaclav Havel.
