Have only the audio do The 4-Hour work week. So I can't compare.
When he talks about getting rid of "things". Made me realize how meaningless and stressful stuff can be.
Absolutely Tim Ferriss!! I believe all authors should narrate their own books. I could just imagine how much more passionate some parts of the book would sound, and the humor would have come across way funnier.
The narration of all the website addresses was a little much since there were so many, would be nice to get a PDF version with the audio.
Not even if you paid me to listen to them!
It's totally impractical, if you were to do even half of the things suggested in this book then you would either be fired from your job or your business would be shut down in under a year.
Ray Porter wasn't the problem with this book it was the author.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS TRASH!
Yes. Good for rethinking how you spend your workday. Good for motivating you to do things that are more rewarding than many tasks that fill your day.
Ferris's work challenged me to think about my life and work, my motivations, my goals, my dreams and then gave me some pointed suggestions on how to make the changes I desire. Even for the person who loves their work and wants to spend hours there, this book has some great ideas on improving focus and enriching your non-work hours.
The reader is fantastic! I bought the book for some of its resources, but I like Ray Porter's reading better than the voice inside my head.
Aside from Daniel Lapin's
The information about how to maximize your work output while minimizing the time invested.
couldn't say. It is a masterpiece in it's entirety.
Revolutionize your entire life by reading and implementing any one thing in this book.
There are dozens of Ideas; pick one and do it. Then do another.
the book was great but it sounded like a computer was reading the book really hard to get into.
From Chapters 1-8-it's predominantly about the author's merits, his wit, and self glorification. Chapter 9 finally shows me WHY I purchased this book.
Wouldn't get another one of his books. Listening to his ego is a little overbearing, with no real applicable point. Author seems very witty, but very arrogant. I really wouldn't follow his suggestion with outsourcing my assistant/secretary via India or any other country-especially if the person has my credit card #. To hear that he had someone from India write a love letter to his spouse on his behalf is not only impersonal, it's sheer laziness. Some books show the author has a passion to teach. But it really seems like this book was only written for the author to make more money. Sounds like he'll probably write another book with little substance. I guess we'll find out.
Narrator was ok. Pretty good at creating an image of the author.
Chapter 9 finally got good. It shows that you must have very specific niche market, with a specific plan, and must test target market group. It also shows examples of companies that failed, why they failed, and what/why companies succeeded. But there are better books out there that want to
Tell us about yourself!
Great book, gives you all the steps you need to walk away from your 9-5 and start living the way you really want. Recommend it to anyone that has ever wanted to live in another country or to travel the world.
But sounded like the guy at the bar that keeps going on and on about how great he is. Meanwhile all the rest of the bar patrons can think is 'If you're so awesome, then why are you here with the rest of us?' Between the actual writing and the in-your-face narration, I couldn't even get through the whole thing. This book would have had potential if it had only been ten pages long.
