I had to double check if the book was narrated by Timothy himself because the narrator really seemed to capture what I assumed the author was thinking. Most professional narrators don't capture the emotion and emphasis as author-narrators do. Once again, the narration is superior.
Frankly, I'm only about 30 min into the audiobook, but the story and content has already captured my attention, and thought process to some degree.
Listening helps you to see a number of things you can do or change to make your work easier, more streamlined and tips and tricks to help you reduce the hours you have to work.
It does have some ideas that I don't think are practical for allot of people.
I did find it worth getting and do recommend it.
Very practical approach
Not gimmicky like it sounds
More resources listed than you could ever remember. It would probably be a good idea to buy the hard copy of this book for that reason.
I will definitely read this one again.
wish I had read this book earlier would have saved me a lot of time and grief in my life living the way I do. I found a great outsourcer on odesk helps me do everything. Also saves me time on everything wish I had read this book 20 years ago. If there is one thing I am upset about it that Tim Ferris didn't publish this earlier. All the time wasted the money spent and just nonsense I focused on my life. Now I get more done than procrastinate like before.
This is the best business book ever.

I love the first half of this book and the second, but it may be hard to follow if you want to do the excercises.
Really enjoyed the methods described, very detailed road map. I got lost in the inspiring stories, because I was already psyched (4-hour Work Week is a great title for a book), and then had to tune back in for the nuts and bolts of how they made it happen. Lessons are valuable. It can even change your life while you maintain a steady 40 hour/week job, but show you how to shuffle your life to make efficient.
Who Stole my Cheese. Shorter, but gets right to the heart of FHWW.
I've had my own business for almost 10 years and have pretty much broken every tenant he puts forward in the book. The good news is that I can change! Ferris offers so many timely, practical, and achievable tips that are now helping me change how I run the business. And while I may never have a regular 4 hour workweek, I sure am going to find more time for growing my business and growing my life outside my business.
I also LOVE having this as an audible book so I can listen to it on the go (and the narrator has great pipes, too <:).
