Tim Ferriss Shows Off 5 Pen Tricks From Japan

Tim Ferriss, the author of the #1 NYT Bestseller ‘Four Hour Workweek’ (and self-confessed Serial Entrepreneur and Ultravagabond), shows off his pen tricks with an ordinary Bic Pen. There are five tricks in all, graded according to the level of difficulty in performing them. Really great stuff.

Snip from the article:

When I was 15, I went to Japan for one year as an exchange student. I was the lone American in a school of 5,000 Japanese, and I quickly acquired one habit that has since driven every girlfriend and teacher of mine absolutely nuts: pen tricks.

The Japanese, Taiwanese, and Koreans – none of them can hold pens still for a second. Now you won’t be able to either.
