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 <:).
Yes! Not only was the content amazing...but listening to it was awesome and funny. Great delivery from the Narrator.
Best so far.
You didn't start a business in order to be a slave, you started a business to make money on your terms.
only did the audio...would like to have the book to refer back to a lot of the tips and websites though
no, he contradicts himself at times and the book just skims the surface...I need more
Worth Your Time
Absolutely! It has instructions on uncluttering your life, simplifying the use and access to technology, and actual instructions in a step by step format that are easy to follow.
His believeable and solid voice inspires trust and is easy to follow, understand and immerse oneself into the lessons being laid out.
Yes, but one needs to go over different portions while in front of their computer.
While I likely wont start an online business as he shows how to do, the structuring of ones life, the methods for stripping the essentials out for analyses are important and enjoyable. A fun listen that also is very educational.
Netflix Desktop for Ubuntu will run the Audible cloud/web player.
The narrator did a great job with narration. Sounding confident, and keeping it interesting.
I thought that the author could have spent more time on HOW to make money and automating the income streams. I did not like that he spent so long on telling you where to get information for when you are living overseas. Hours..literally.. the problem is that I didn't feel 100% comfortable with his ideas by the time he got to this part.
I feel like I'd rather be hearing more about how to make a kick ass business (which he does cover..albeit could have talked longer about it). Rather than telling me for hours how to live overseas and what websites would be great for information.
No, I haven't. but the narrator has done a great job of matching the authors own confidence with his narration. He did a great job of having a varied voice, with lots of emotions, very clear and strong. I'd follow this man into battle if I had to.
In fact I hope that Ray will go on to do great things of his own.
Yes! I WILL become part of the new rich.
I will listen to this book again and again, and make use of the information. I read the original when it first came out, but having it on Audio lets me check in, refine and re-motivate. Tim Ferriss is a modern day hero!
Raw, arrogant, conceded, amateurish. A hardy punch in the gut. A good slap across your conceived notion. It'll piss you off to know the answer is right in front of you all along. The question will then be- will you do something about it?
A little slow at first. Ride it through. It's a great book.
Love to listen to audible while I run.
I recommend this book to anyone and everyone who is living a nose to the grindstone, save every penny for retirement, stress saturated life. Tim gives a new perspective to the type A over-achiever which is worth hearing. It feels as if you are listening to a good friend share his and other down to earth successful entrepreneurs' secret. The book is filled with helpful information and is quite humorous. I bought the hard copy after listening, so that I could reference websites and take notes.
