The Third Door: The Wild Quest to Uncover How the World's Most Successful People Launched Their Careers by Alex Banayan | Conversation Starters
The Third Door: The Wild Quest to Uncover How the World's Most Successful People Launched Their Careers is about the surreal journey of Alex Banayan, an 18-year-old college freshman. After winning in The Price is Right, Banayan set out and followed Bill Gates, Jessica Alba, Maya Angelou, Lady Gaga and several more successful people to learn how they launched their careers. Alex found out that they have one thing in common: all of them took the Third Door.
Banayan says that life, success or business are like nightclubs. There are three ways to get in. The first door is where ninety-nine percent of people hope to get in. The main entrance is where people get in line to have the chance to go inside. The second door is for the VIPs. This entrance is where the celebrities and billionaires enter. And then there is the third door. This is where you skip the line, climb on top of the dumpster, run down the alley, crack open the nightclub window or the kitchen window. There will always be a way to get in.
Conservation International CEO DR. M. Sanjayan loves The Third Door and praises Banayan for demystifying “the hardest and scariest thing many of us have to do to succeed.” Mother Teresa author Ruma Bose calls The Third Door “an inspiring read for anyone looking to find their purpose.”
