“Shane’s community is my first stop each morning and my last one each night. I gain knowledge in every area, but most importantly I gain wisdom. I have been a member for years and know it can benefit everyone.”
Join a like-minded community of high achievers committed to better thinking, wiser decision-making, and more focused growth.
Our goal at Farnam Street is to help you go to bed every night smarter than you were when you woke up. Every day, thousands of people turn to us for the kind of multidisciplinary education you can’t get anywhere else. The Farnam Street Membership is for those who want to go a step further and make intentional learning a daily way of life.
Our readers have always been exceptional people committed to personal growth, and so we launched the FS Members community to better connect with those readers and to provide a place where they could connect with each other. The community has grown to more than 9,000 members and is home to CEOs, investors, GMs, and high-achievers in all walks of life.
When you become a Farnam Street Member, you’re not just getting exclusive access to member-only training — including special podcast episodes, unique articles, and hyper-focused courses — you’re also getting plugged into an incredibly powerful network of high achievers. You’ll be rubbing shoulders with people who walk the walk and are accomplishing amazing things in every industry, niche, and business model.
You’ll also be directly supporting our mission at FS to help people around the world think better and make better decisions.
Farnam Street Members get perks that aren’t available anywhere else. This private trove is brimming with valuable resources to help you get answers, make better decisions, and take advantage of opportunities.
Here’s a small taste of what you’ll get.
Early Access to Episodes
Members get early access to podcast episodes before anyone else.
Ad-Free Versions of The Knowledge Project
With a unique subscriber feed, you gain access to ad-free versions of the show.
Subscribers get hand-edited transcripts of episodes allowing them to accelerate their learning, take notes, and reference shows later without having to re-listen to the entire episode.
Exclusive Networking Opportunities
You’ll find private networking opportunities with amazing authors, executives, and entrepreneurs. Join any of a number of active threads dedicated to accelerating your personal growth and development — questions, answers, and everything in between.
Membership In A Like-Minded Community
Join an ever-growing community of 9,000+ high achievers that includes CEOs, investors, GMs, and leaders from all walks of life.
Courses to Master Your Productivity
When you join the Farnam Street Membership, you also get free access to The Art of Reading, Productivity that Gets Results, and The Art of Focus. Thousands of students have used these courses to read more deeply, focus on what really matters, and avoid costly mistakes.
We created the “FS Guide” series to capture advice, wisdom, and tactics from those who have already figured these things out (or failed and learned from it!). As well as MEMBERS-ONLY BONUS ARTICLES – An extensive, ever-growing collection of original articles on topics such as relationships, leadership, decision-making, investing, and more. It’s similar to what you get on the blog, except deeper, more practical, and targeted at helping you improve at whatever you’re learning right now. We add new material and you’ll also have access to the full back-catalog.
Ask Me Anything (AMA) Sessions
Get personalized advice and answers to your burning questions in AMA sessions with authors, entrepreneurs, coaches, investors, and others who are making a big splash in their fields. Past guests have included James Clear, Gretchen Rubin, Nir Eyal, Ryan Holiday, Josh Kaufman, Susan David, and many more. AMAs are available as podcast episodes, videos, and transcripts.
“[Farnam Street] does a really remarkable job of looking at culture, history, and interesting books … I check this almost every day.”
To help you learn from the best, we’ve created an ever-growing library of detailed summaries of some of the most important books ever written. Each summary extracts the key insights and lessons from a challenging book, including: The Logic of Scientific Discovery, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, Crowds and Power, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, and more…

*Please note all options are non-refundable. All options give the exact same access to everything the FS membership offers. Several members have asked how to give more to support a resource they love and rely on, so this is an easy way to do that.
Make sure you’re logged in to your account and head over to the ‘Membership’ tab to access all your amazing membership content.
This membership isn’t for me. Can I get a refund?
Our membership is non-refundable. You can turn off your auto-renew so you won’t be charged again. If you’d like help getting the most from a membership you’ve purchased, email us at [email protected], and we’ll point you in the right direction.
How can I get help for a question that isn’t listed here?
My membership was renewed, and I didn’t mean for that to happen; what can I do?
We send multiple emails well in advance of renewing so you’re not surprised. With that said, email [email protected], and we’ll do our best to assist you.
I have some comments or ideas about the membership I’d love to share with the FS team.
Email us at [email protected] with any comments or ideas. We’d love to hear from you!
What’s the Pay More option?
You can choose to pay whatever amount you’d like for the membership as long as it’s higher than the standard annual membership fee ($149 USD). This is for anyone wishing to support what we do a little more than the standard membership fee.
Can I share any membership content outside the membership?
All our members’ only content is reserved for members. You’re getting access to exclusive content through the annual fee. If any content is shared outside the membership, this can result in your membership being revoked.
